Meet the Team

Our team has over 16 years’ experience of supporting local communities and successfully promoting social justice. Micah Liverpool wouldn’t be able to function to the standard and capacity that it does without our wonderful team.

They are:

Paul O’Brien – Executive Director

Paul has over 12 years of experience working in advice, guidance and employability. His knowledge and experience were crucial to underpinning the content of the bespoke Recruitability training developed by Paul at Liverpool Cathedral. Since June 2017 he has been spreading his wings and took on new responsibility running the Food Bank. Both Paul, the Food Bank and the Volunteer Programme have since gone from strength to strength and we are delighted to have him at the helm of Micah Liverpool.

Carl O’Brien – Data Monitoring Officer

Carl has been at the Cathedral for over 4 years now and has recently expanded his responsibilities to include data entry for the Food Bank. He is now responsible for the administration of the Volunteer Programme and the Food Bank as well as the volunteers who take a data entry placement during their 10 week course. Having come on to the programme as a volunteer himself in Group 7 he knows exactly what the volunteers are going through and what they can achieve.

Martin Fuller – Driver

Martin has come to take on the food collection and stores role with Micah Liverpool’s Food Bank. Much to the relief of the rest of the team Martin will now take responsibility for driving to pick up food, receiving donations at the Cathedral, organising the store room and taking food and supplies to both pantry sessions and Community Markets.

Carly Williams  – Food Aid Assistant

Carly

Carly came to us in June, and her role is to manage and maintain all food aid activity. Carly has built great relationships with Micah Liverpools partners and all of our volunteers, including supporting the Micah Liverpool Volunteer programme. Carly has improved the efficiency at the food banks and has helped us build new relationships with donors.
