Head of HR & Support Services

mySociety’s always been a pretty good place to work, but there’s always room for improvement. In 2022, Yolanda joined mySociety, with the remit of creating a happier, healthier workplace for us all, across the areas of HR and the all-important Wellbeing.

She brought with her 17 years experience in the charity sector, and in her last post was leading on the Continuous Improvement Programme.

Originally from South Africa, Yolanda now lives in Hertfordshire, and is kept busy outside working hours “running after three kids, cooking, and trying to keep fit with a combination of terrible running, pilates and outdoor bootcamp classes.”

Yolanda is one of mySociety’s qualified Mental Health First Aiders, helping to support, reassure and signpost fellow colleagues to professional support.

Yolanda is fluent in: Afrikaans
