As a Principal Associate for Triple Line, I work on inclusion and equality. A former colleague and friend recommended the company to me. She said Triple Line was the most exciting, free-thinking and innovative group of development consultants she had worked with. She wasn’t wrong. A week later I met one of their consultants by chance, was completely convinced and applied for an advertised job - and here I am 8 years later.
Before working with Triple Line, I’d lived and worked in Lebanon, Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan, where I began my career. It was here that I helped a visionary Government Civil Servant start a primary school in a remote area called Chitral. I thought I’d spend three months doing this but in total I stayed for eight years, holding positions in UNICEF and in the UK government.
Triple Line has more than matched the challenges of my years abroad. We work on an ever-changing agenda where addressing inequality, marginalisation and vulnerability is the one constant. Significantly, this company has minimal staff turnover so most of us have worked and grown together. We like and trust each other and in normal times there are ample opportunities to travel and take on new areas of work.
