Charlie has a strong background in the education and charity sectors, most recently as Development Director with London Music Masters, an arts and culture charity. Charlie takes over from Francis Wight, who was an integral part of the Student Hubs team for the last seven years.
Charlie Hamilton, incoming CEO of Student Hubs said:
“I feel privileged to be joining Student Hubs. Now more than ever our communities and Higher Education sector are facing huge challenges, and I believe Student Hubs’ proven double benefit model provides us with optimism. I am extremely impressed by the Student Hubs team and what they have achieved, and am now excited to lead and be supported by such a high-performing team towards our mission to mainstream student social action.’
Jenny Ekelund, chair of Student Hubs’ board of trustees said:
“We are really excited to welcome Charlie as the new Chief Executive of Student Hubs. In addition to her vast experience across communications, fundraising and partnership working, she brings real energy and enthusiasm for Student Hubs’ vision and mission. The Board and Staff team are very excited about her strong vision for leading the organisation forward.
“As he moves on to new roles, I’d like to thank Francis Wight; his passion for student social action that he brought to Student Hubs over the last seven years ensured that we never strayed from our vision to provide high quality leadership and volunteering opportunities in order for students to gain new skills and impact their communities.”
Charlie has just taken up her new role and we are looking forward to introducing her to student volunteers and valued partners around our network. Charlie will be touring each of the Hubs in her first few months, so ensure that you follow the journey via our social media accounts.
