Duncan is the Finance and Administration Manager at the Creative Industries Policy and Evidence Centre.

Although studying Biology at University, Duncan’s background is in local government and the charity sector. Having spent almost ten years as a registrar, Duncan reconsidered his long-term career options in 2016 and took his first steps into the charity sector.

Prior to joining Nesta, Duncan worked for the Peter Jones Foundation as a programme manager and later in operations, working with hundreds of schools nationwide to provide £100k a year in seed funding for them to start small enterprises. Following this, Duncan worked for Citizens Advice Southwark in early 2021 as Operations and Administration Manager, enjoying the variety of work this role afforded and the direct impact it had on local people.

Duncan is taking up the opportunity to become part of Nesta and looks forward to getting stuck into the role.
