Green Shoots Support Team
Managing Director – Michela Finnis
Graduating from Swansea University in 2011 with a degree in Italian Studies, Michela swiftly found work with a translation company. After spending two years in the language industry she took time off to have a baby. During maternity leave, Michela began re-evaluating the direction in which she wanted to take her career and harboured a desire to make a real change. In 2014 she set up Green Shoots Support to use her research and business development skills to help small charities and SMEs grow and become self-sufficient.
Director – Scott Jenkins
Scott moved to Swansea in 2009 to start his PhD in medieval history. With a proven track record in attracting funding he moved into the Third Sector in 2013, working for a Not-For-Profit and freelancing as bid writer for charity grant applications and private tenders. In 2014 Scott joined Michela to set up Green Shoots Support to use his knowledge of fundraising and passion and drive to make the world a better place and help those charities which could not afford their own staff by reinvesting the earnings made from those who could.
We will be adding profiles and bios of our consultants shortly.
