Director of Communications
As Director of Communications, Ella helps to tell Nesta's story and to engage a wide range of audiences in our work. Ella has senior-level experience across marketing, media relations, brand strategy, digital, public affairs and corporate communications.
Before Nesta, she was Director of Communications for the Institute for Public Policy Research, a progressive policy think tank. She worked to achieve impact and influence for ideas across a wide range of policy areas including the economy, skills, transport, democracy, the environment, education, energy, and migration.
Prior to that, she worked in a range of roles across the not-for-profit sector, including nearly 10 years at Arts Council England, where she was Director of Marketing and Digital Communications.
Outside of work, you'll find Ella chasing her three small children around a local park, going to the theatre or with her nose in a good book.
