Her dedication to excel in all areas of her graduate scheme – delivering the best outputs for clients, graduate competency framework and internal initiatives – has seen her awarded her team’s ‘Most Valuable Person’ award two years in a row.

Becca is a champion for equality and diversity and empowering the voice of others within her own organisation, for her clients and their service users and the wider Consultancy sector.

Becca has already made a meaningful impact both within NECS Consultancy and for her clients, delivering positive outcomes together with compassionate teamworking and leadership. As she progresses in her consultancy career, Becca feels passionately about the importance of continuing to advocate for the voice of not just her colleagues and clients, but also the citizens who access client services.
