Tracy Dack | Training Administrator

This is my second stint at Momentum (Norfolk) - my first post in the voluntary sector was with Momentum in 2006, when it was known as Norfolk Council for Voluntary Youth Services. I re-joined in 2009 as Training Administrator. 

 

I have also worked for Victim Support as Victim Care Officer and with Norfolk Scouts, as Deputy County Secretary.  Prior to my voluntary sector experience I worked for 21 years in the private sector working for a local ceramic tile distributor, starting as a telephonist when I first left school and working my way up through the company to the position of Credit Controller.

 

As well as my broad experience in administration, I have a Level 2 in the Principles of Business and Administration. On a personal level, I have overcome some significant challenges but always have time for a friendly hello. I recently applied to volunteer within the NHS (West Norwich Community Hospital) as a befriender.

Richard

Richard Vojvoda | Social Media and Digital Marketing Assistant

Richard joined Momentum (Norfolk) in July 2017. His position as a Social Media and Digital Marketing Assistant nicely plays into his passion for media and technology; a passion that he has been developing ever since he stuck his fingers and a fistful of bottle caps into his grandparents’ VHS recorder as a toddler. Obviously, he had a lot to learn about how media works and that’s why he decided to do his BA and MA in Film Studies at the University of East Anglia. He is currently working towards his PhD where he also got his first opportunity at teaching undergraduates as an Associate Tutor. His responsibilities at Momentum (Norfolk) include updating website content, social media presence and publishing regular E-news.

Liz Joslin | DBS Administrator

I enjoy helping others. I busily work two jobs in the week helping get DBS check applications countersigned for clients. Then on Sundays I work a voluntary job for Mencap in one of their sales shops.
