Mo joined FOCUS in 2017 as Office Coordinator, with responsibility for financial management, payroll and office administration.

Prior to joining the team, Mo spent 15 years as Finance Officer at the Contact Project in St Matthews, having also worked in voluntary and paid roles within the voluntary sector as an IT tutor for mental health organisations.

He is trained in book-keeping, business administration and IT, but is also a qualified auto-electrician – a profession in which he worked until injury prompted him to re-train and change career. At FOCUS, Mo is known for his meticulous eye for detail and his range of knowledge of all things admin.

“I know it sounds boring, but I love working with figures and finance! To know that I can pursue my passion for this work for the benefit of other people gives me a huge sense of satisfaction. I’ve learned so much working in the voluntary sector and supporting others – not least, it’s taught me patience.”
