Meet the Team: Nicola Barber

  1. Full Name: Nicola Barber
  2. Job Title: Community Engagement Worker
  3. Date joined YCC: I joined Fresh Futures in September 2021, but I’ve been in my current role for just 3 weeks after a role change!
  4. Tell us a little about yourself? I love baking! This hobby developed over Covid and I love any opportunity to bake for a special occasion. I also like getting to gym classes when I can (to burn off all the cake!)
  5. Your role in a nutshell: Always looking for opportunities to promote the Hopeful Families service within the Kirklees community.
  6. Why do you like working for YCC? It is a friendly and supportive working environment. The flexible working hours are great and make you feel like you have more of a home/work life balance. I also like that the service focuses on the whole family as well as individual needs; ‘Improve lives & Inspire change’, how could you not want to be a part of that. 😊
  7. What’s one of your favourite work memories? The Jubilee Event for families. It was the first big family event I’ve attended and there was a great atmosphere. I know the team put a lot of hard work into making the day special for everyone attending, so it was lovely to see it being enjoyed.
  8. And finally, what advice would you give to people considering working at YCC? If the role sounds right for you, then just apply!
