Nabila Ayub has joined the Hub project team under the Partnership’s Fellowship Programme.

Nabila oversees Business Development for the Employment & Skills Department at Bradford Council, which includes employer engagement in the education space through to developing recruitment solutions for those businesses. Prior to this role Nabila was the Equality & Diversity Adviser at Leeds Beckett University, something she is passionate about for both staff and young people’s experience. Nabila is keen on learning some new skills to add to her mix around health and wellbeing by joining the Hub, and believes that this will also help her substantive role in supporting businesses across the district. Nabila was particularly drawn to this project because of her experience in EDI, working with ethnic minority communities and inexperience in the health sector, which she believes could be combined to develop a stretching opportunity.

Nabila worked at Mosaic both at Business in the Community and The Princes Trust as Area North Manager, overseeing operations across Scotland, Yorkshire and the North West, managing a range of stakeholder relationships in the corporate and public services, including donors, Regional Leadership Group Members, volunteers, mentors and schools.  She has around 16 years of experience in the third sector which include working regionally, nationally and internationally on programmes designed to impact disadvantaged communities.

Working under the Fellowship Programme Nabila will be supporting the work of the Hub two days a week on a 12 month placement.

Topically, Nabila is interested in sports, holding a second degree black belt in Jujitsu and occasionally coach, grade students when work isn’t keeping her too busy.
