Soo Brizell has worked for Shekinah since July 2007 where her career has developed from delivering the Ready for Work programme in partnership for Business in the Community to developing Shekinah’s award winning Employability programme. In 2015 Soo was appointed Head of Strategic Partnerships and Contracts and works alongside statutory agencies, the public and private sector and local charities and community groups. 

Born in Liverpool, Soo left home at 18 yrs old and commenced her passion for travelling. Starting with working on a Kibbutz in Israel, travelling and working across Europe and having spent a fabulous time at University of Northumbria, Soo then decided to live in Colombia for a few years. This is where Soo’s passion for working with people affected by poverty began.

Soo has a passion for creating opportunities for people to engage with each other and values the importance of treating everyone with dignity and respect. These values have helped Soo maintain her passion for working at Shekinah, working with a team of amazing people and always trying her best to help make a difference!
