About Nesta

Nesta is an innovation foundation. For us, innovation means turning bold ideas into reality and changing lives for the better. We use our expertise, skills and funding in areas where there are big challenges facing society.

Natalie joins Nesta as an operations assistant for the Central Programmes Office.

Before Nesta, Natalie worked in education. Most recently at a secondary school as a pastoral administrator, where she provided administrative support to the pastoral teams and planned whole-school events. Prior to that, she worked as a pastoral assistant in a sixth form, where she worked closely with sixth form students to resolve their academic and personal issues. 

Natalie studied history at The University of Sheffield, where she specialised in South Africa and the end of apartheid, with particular focus on grassroots movements and international boycotts. 

Outside of work, Natalie likes to travel and explore new places and get outside in nature.
