Operations Manager

Abi Smith

My path to the Foundation has been a long and winding one, kicking off with a six-year stint at Lord’s Cricket Ground looking after stewarding operations across the venue. After six memorable cricket seasons and in celebration of completing my MA in Human Rights, I went in search of warmer climes and found myself in Sydney, working within a People & Culture team.

The following 18 months saw me dive a little deeper into the world of recruitment, employer branding and company culture – both at home and abroad – before taking on an Office Manager role in the City.

Having decided that operations was definitely my calling and in pursuit of a long-held belief that companies should do more than make a profit, I left the City behind and joined The Photography Foundation to help bring the social enterprise to life.
