Hi guys. My name is Ben Sadek and this Autumn I joined the RESULTS UK Parliamentary Advocacy Team. My role as coordinator is primarily to support the Parliamentary team. I will be on hand to send out weekly briefings, organise meetings, provide administrative support, and more generally, be available to assist with any tasks that are thrown my way. I am eager to get to grips with RESULTS’ four key issue areas, and I look forward to discovering more about our grassroots campaigns and the work we are doing weekly up and down the country.
Before joining RESULTS, I did a number of short internships and completed a part-time MSc just down the river at King’s College London. First, I worked at Future First, a great education charity that is building state school alumni networks around the UK. After this, I spent seven months working for Annette Brooke MP in her Westminster office. In 2013, I also spent six months working for an NGO in Brazil’s largest favela (shantytown), Rocinha, and recently returned there to carry out field research for my MSc dissertation.
My first week here at RESULTS has coincided with the release of the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals. It seems like a great time to be here, and I really can’t wait to get started. Feel free to get in touch if I can be of any help (or you like coffee): email@example.com.
