On Purpose

Hannah Casey

Hannah is a Fellow of the Associate Programme, having been part of the October 2018 cohort in London, and joined the core team in March 2020.

Prior to joining the Associate Programme, Hannah worked in advertising agencies for several years, specialising in financial services and gaining an appreciation for how the current economic system is exacerbating social inequality and the climate crisis. She left advertising to pursue a more impactful career through the On Purpose programme.

During her On Purpose year she worked firstly at A New Direction, a charity focused on increasing access to the arts for all young Londoners. Here, she delivered a research report on how to build the creative workforce of the future. She then worked at Snowball, an impact investment fund where she developed their brand and communications strategy.

Hannah holds a masters degree in Geography and Spanish from the University of St Andrews and speaks Spanish and (some) French. She is passionate about the arts and creativity and their capacity to empower people and change mindsets. In her spare time Hannah volunteers at a local theatre.
