Pro Bono Manager, The OR Society
Amy Hughes is the Pro Bono Manager and Strategic Projects Officer at the Operational Research Society. She is also responsible for the management and support of the society’s regional branches and its special interest groups across the UK.
She works closely with volunteer professional analysts to ensure third sector organisations receive OR support to resolve a diverse range of operational and strategic problems.
Amy enjoys seeing first-hand the innumerable ways in which organisations benefit and develop from the work of the Pro Bono scheme’s 600 volunteers and strives to raise the sector’ awareness of their ability to access such a high quality of expertise that might otherwise be out of reach.
Prior to this role, Amy has worked in research, policy development and project management within the third sector, working with a number of charities across the West Midlands, the NHS and Birmingham city council. Amy is also a board member of a women and girls personal and professional development charity in Birmingham.
