Tim joined CARE International UK in London in September 2006 to set up their Private Sector Engagement team, a cross-functional unit which went on to establish a range of global private sector partnerships and sustainable development initiatives for CARE. He then moved to Vietnam in 2011 where he led several internal initiatives aimed at improving CARE’s cross-sector partnership work and enhance the confederation’s overall programme quality and connectivity. This included the establishment of a new area of programming called Resilient Market Systems, which analyzed how to best improve CARE’s women’s economic empowerment work within the context of humanitarian crises.
From the end of 2017 he then ran a unit inside of CARE USA’s Innovation Services department, driving their global work to develop more systematic ways of delivering poverty and social injustice interventions by focusing on design systems, new operating models, and turning learning from across the CARE network into best practice. Examples include: working with CARE Philippines to design new humanitarian relief programmes with local communities; with CARE Egypt on social accountability; and with CARE West Bank Gaza on women’s economic empowerment.
Prior to joining CARE, Tim spent 10 years in London, working in public, private and non-profit sector roles, largely specialising in corporate communications, CSR, fundraising and marketing functions.
Tim now heads up his own consulting practice – www.coracleconsulting.net – offering brokering and capacity building services to improve the quality of cross-sector partnerships and collaborations that address different social and environmental challenges.
