Sam joined the consultancy team at Action Sustainability in March 2022 as a Consultant Researcher. He currently works with the award-winning Supply Chain Sustainability School to further address challenges related to modern slavery, a lack of diversity in the labour force and the delivery of Social Value. This includes preparing training materials and supporting with the Social Value and Labour Group training programmes.

He also can’t help collecting indoor houseplants and lives in his own “indoor jungle”.
