Alicia Oughton

Alicia has been working in the not-for-profit sector for over 20 years. Previously based internationally in various countries such as Afghanistan, Sudan, Bangladesh and Lebanon. Her experience has been a balance of both operational and strategic Human Resources (HR).

At Ember her role is very much centred on supporting the management team with sustainable organisational design. Paying particular attention to Equality Diversity and Inclusion. And strengthening the shared culture and values that underpin Ember.

The well-being of our colleagues is of paramount importance. And Alicia, along with other colleagues at Ember, is at the forefront of championing a healthy and happy team.

Alicia is a qualified Associate member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). And has the business acumen to recognise the wants and needs of her business clients while respecting the relevant employment laws.

Outside of work Alicia loves to challenge herself at various activities (hiking, cycling, swimming, kayaking, running), as long as it’s outdoors in the fresh air. And nothing beats sitting in a little independent cafe with a good coffee, people watching.
