Richard is the Operations and Finance Manager and joined the Belong team in December 2023.

Richard has a strong background in managing the growth of successful charities, co-ops and not-for-profit organisations. He has previously been Head of Operations for the Fair Tax Foundation, an organisation he joined as the first full-time member of staff. Richard also had the privilege of managing the process of creating Sir Bobby Charlton’s landmine charity.

As a business development manager for the University of Manchester, Richard built partnerships with some of the university’s largest commercial partners. He has also worked in legal and contractual roles and most recently was the transformation programme manager at St Helens council.

Outside of work, Richard spends a lot of time playing sports, too much of which consists of playing tennis badly. He also suffers the misfortune of supporting Bristol Rovers.
