Vwede Okorefe

I spend my time making sure that things like the electricity gets paid, the boiler works and just generally support the team with all other manner of things that need to get done so the 10:10 staff can crack on with the work of tackling climate change.

I'm a regular occasional yoga lover and meditation geek, and I'm a big fan of dancing to any beat I can find.

Daniel Jones

Communications

I spend my time learning how 10:10 makes everything it produces look and sound great. This means doing stuff like writing emails, helping maintain the website and speaking to our supporters through social media.

When not at work I like to spend my time trying to speak and learn Spanish, collecting and finding old things and (very) occasionally running.

Holly Stower

Communications

I support the communications team: from polishing the website, to helping manage the social media accounts.   

I am fresh out of university with an MSci in Environmental science from the University of East Anglia. My research focus was within community energy and science communication. During my studies I had many part time/ridiculous jobs including drama teaching, London tour guiding, beach life guarding, event managing and my personal fave - handing out free frozen yogurt at festivals.   

In my spare time I cycle, ski, surf and sing 80's power ballads at my family. 

Max Wakefield

Lead campaigner

My role is to bring forward new campaigns and work with the campaigns team on our live projects.

Before joining 10:10 I mainly worked in grass-roots groups with next to no resources, around energy and finance.

As well as taking an interest and writing about energy systems, I can also teach you to build a solar panel from scratch.

I have a longstanding and irreversible commitment to sausage dogs.

 

Helen Stack

Director of development

I'm lucky enough to work with 10:10's brilliant group of donors and supporters. They're the massive force behind everything we do to tackle climate change.

Before joining wonderful 10:10 I spent more than a decade in the voluntary sector, working with international, education and welfare charities. When not at work I'll generally be out looking for diggers and emergency vehicles with a tiny toddler.

 

Esther Griffin

Communications manager

I spend my days making the It's Happening project happen by scouring the internet for the most positive stories about climate change. I bring the optimism. I spend the rest of my time fixing our website and making sure it's all in the right shade of pink.

Before working at 10:10 I did a bit of work in party politics and lobbying. I've also worked in a nursery, where I wasn't highly qualified enough to change nappies. I spend the rest of my time doing crochet, going to church and swing dancing.

Jesse Scharf

Campaign manager

I help deliver our projects - from supporting community solar in Sussex to developing our amazing app - and I am currently working on a unique trial of local electricity supply that could breath new life into our renewables sector.

In a previous life I worked for the the National Union of Students where I helped universities and Student Unions use less energy, recycle more and generally tread a bit lighter on the planet. I have a range of lapsed hobbies that I am always planning to get back into: including badminton, playing the piano and trying to grow some of my own veg.   

Alice Bell

Head of communications

It's my job to think about how our campaigns can engage new audiences. And if you've got a media inquiry, I'm the person to chat to.

I've worked as a journalist and editor, and also in museums, but spent most of my career in academia. My PhD's in science communication, and I've lectured in science policy and science journalism too. I knit, do yoga, go on long walks and am really into bat watching.

Emma Kemp

Campaigner

I make sure our Solar Schools are rocking it, and jump in when other campaigns need a hand.

I joined 10:10 on an internship, and instantly knew I wanted to stay. As I found my feet in the carbon-cutting world, I worked in events fundraising and spent the summer trekking around festivals with Greenpeace. I love satire, krav maga, hedgehogs, and eat an unholy amount of sweet potato fries.

David Rouane

Director of finance

It's my job to worry about the money side of things.

I'm a qualified accountant but I have been working for charities so long that I'm probably unemployable anywhere else. When I'm not at 10:10, I'm sometimes working for other charities sorting out their knotty little problems. Although I deny being a film buff, I did set up my  local film club to show the films that Cineworld don't.

Director of strategy

I make sure that 10:10's campaigns punch well above our weight - generating new ideas, spotting threats and opportunities and keeping track of how we fit into the big picture of climate action.

I’ve been active on climate change for nearly a decade, including in the successful campaign against a third runway at Heathrow Airport. I co-founded the 10:10 campaign back in 2009, and I’ve been back since 2013 following a stint building adventure playgrounds with my non-profit Monkey-Do. In what I laughingly call my spare time I run A Free Ride, the campaign to replace Air Passenger Duty with a fairer, greener Frequent Flyer Levy.

Cecily Spelling

Campaign manager

I make sure our Solar Schools and Community Energy GM projects continue to be amazing. It's not hard, obviously.

Before 10:10 I was with the wonderful SolarAid, helping them set up their solar light libraries project in Senegal. Before that I was a dog walker which would probably be my second favourite job ever. I like to cook (eat), travel the world, and dogs, especially my own.

 

Amy Cameron

Director of operations

I’m responsible for turning ideas and strategy into a practical reality, and for the overall smooth running of the organisation.

I started out as an intern back in early 2011 and have refused to leave since. Prior to that I had a brief foray (ie six years of training and full qualification) into veterinary medicine. This now enables me to provide random and useless bits of information at staff lunches. I’m a committed theatre goer, feeder and eater, only just counterbalanced by some excessive gymming.
