Place Programme Manager

Jenny McConnel

As Place Programme Manager, I work in three key areas:

  1. developing Renaisi’s work on place based systemic change
  2. supporting delivery of the Anchor collaborative work in Hackney
  3. working with colleagues to codify a Renaisi model for place-based and regeneration work.

My experience and skills

I hold a BA in Politics and English Language, and an MA in European Policy. Building on my interest in the impact of policy on communities, I worked a consultant for three and a half years working on projects such as Brexit impact studies, food and drink supply chains, and wellbeing. In 2018 I project managed the Evaluation of Diversity and Democracy for Welsh Government. A key element of this work was undertaking in-depth policy analyses and providing strategic recommendations to clients.  After this experience, I spent five months working in the European Parliament on both the Internal Market and Consumer Projections committee, and Budgetary Control.

My interests

Outside of work, I like to get out into the countryside. When the weather permits, I enjoy running and hiking. I am also a keen cook and enjoy experimenting with new recipes.
