Meet our Hub Manager David

Mon 25 April

David Sayles is the newest member of our small team here at YBTC. Find out a little more about him!
Our new Hub Manager David is responsible for taking care of our premises and ensuring everything runs smoothly in our office and charity shop.

We asked David:

What made you decide to come and work for YBTC?

After spending 28 years in retail, which I loved, I got “itchy” during lockdown and decided it was time to try something new. A friend asked if I had ever thought of working for a charity…and here I am!

I have 28 years' retail knowledge in all areas, not just customer service. I was an admin assistant, did interviewing and recruitment, staff training, worked in the customer café, built and maintained tills and computer systems.

I wanted to use this experience as well as giving something back to the community and not just pleasing shareholders.

Tell us a bit about what you’ve been doing in your role so far

A lot!! You are never bored here. I’ve had a mountain of training to complete, working in the charity shop and sorting donations from our lovely and generous donators. Meeting the whole team and finding out what everyone’s role is within the charity. Cleaning, tidying, making drinks, having meetings… And more importantly meeting some fabulous and inspirational people who are dealing with brain tumours, and their friends and families.

What’s been your favourite thing about working for YBTC so far?

The team!! You will probably never meet such a passionate bunch of people. They are like a little extended family. Everyone has a role, but all work together, to achieve the goals of the charity.

What are you looking forward to that’s coming up within the charity? 

Getting stuck in and helping make a difference to people's lives affected by brain tumours. Also, I love walking and getting outdoors so hopefully you will see me on a few Wellbeing Walks and dropping in to a Drop-In Café (I LOVE cake!)

What is your biggest pet peeve?

Not printable! Haha!
