Introducing our new project administrator


One of York Festival Trust’s key partners over the years has been York St John University. Our latest collaboration has been with their Careers and Employability department who helped us appoint a Project Administrator. We are pleased to welcome Alice Michelle Riley and here is her first blog by way of introduction:

Hello, I thought I would write a quick post to introduce myself to all you lovely people. My name is Alice Riley and I have just been given the job of project administrator for the York Festival Trust.  Currently I am a third year English Literature Student at York St. John University and I’m keen to get stuck in with the rest of the team in organising this year’s conference.

What really attracted me to this position was my desire to get involved with York’s rich heritage. Having moved to York in 2012 to start my degree I fell in love with the city – as everyone who comes here does – and now that I am staying (FOR GOOD) I wanted to get more involved with what makes York the gem that it is.

So now you all know a little bit about me, and I look forwards to getting to know all of you at the 2015 Conference and beyond!
