Staff team

Tom Marshall

Hello I’m Tom, Head of Fundraising & Marketing and my big career is as a fundraiser and partnership expert. I love working with amazing supporters and creating partnerships with businesses which change lives for the better.  I am inspired every day by the young people we support at MyBigCareer.  In my spare time you’ll find me making electronic music or fixing up my rusty campervan.

Richard Watson

Hello I’m Richard, the Chief Executive of the charity.  In my big career I’ve spent the last 15 years working to support young people and I’m motivated by causes which support individuals and communities to overcome societal barriers and to achieve their potential. In evenings and on weekends, I love to read and ride my bike (a lot!).

Sophia Westbury

Hello I’m Sophia, Volunteer Manager.  In my big career, I made a change to the charity sector after working in the sports events industry for 2 ½ years. I’m passionate about supporting young people – helping them to achieve and be the best they can. During my ‘down’ time I love to play hockey competitively and discover new places in London with friends.
