Rodney Williams joins the City Year UK board nine years after he volunteered on the programme. Since that time he gained seven years of experience in the construction industry with National Grid (one of the charity’s main and longest serving financial backers).

Rodney was recently honoured as one of the EMpower 50 Ethnic Minority Future Leaders in their 2018 list, presented by the Financial Times.

In his spare time he is also part of ‘Honest Voice’, a team of entrepreneurs building a digital platform for young people to learn more about the careers and personal development.
