Emma has joined the Nesta Challenges communications team temporarily to help with the new brand identity and launch of the new website.

Previously, she worked as part of the digital team delivering the national Virgin Voom entrepreneur competitions, with full responsibility for the now sadly disbanded Pioneers entrepreneur community. She has also worked on digital communications campaigns for the MS Society, MapAction, National Autistic Society, Kings College Hospital Charity, Clarion Housing, Canal and River Trust, and Campaign for Better Transport.

Prior to this, Emma worked as an individual grants and case manager for various charities, a retail manager, legal administrator for an investment management company specialising in probate and power of attorney, pensions deed technician and a mortgages paralegal.

When away from the office she likes experimenting with digital socialising, immersive theatre, cabaret, rollercoasters and dancing.
