Goldman Sachs analyst takes policy role at children’s rights charity

The National Youth Advocacy Service has appointed a former Goldman Sachs analyst to lead its policy and communications.

Joshua Williams takes over the role at the children's rights charity this summer after spending two years at the finance firm.

His move marks a return to the charity, after spending a year at NYAS in its public affairs and campaigns team from 2020.

He is also a former president of University of Birmingham’s student union and vice chair of Birmingham LGBT.

Williams takes over from Ben Twomey, who was appointed chief executive of Generation Rent earlier this year.

“It is a privilege to be joining NYAS, an organisation that has consistently been at the forefront of advancing the rights of children an young people across the country for over 30 years,” said Williams.

“Their unwavering commitment to amplifying the voices of care-experienced children and young people, empowering them to demand change, really resonates with my own values and lived experiences and I am honoured to be joining the team”.

NYAS group chief executive Rita Waters added: “I am delighted to welcome Joshua once again to continue his excellent work in policy and communications.

“Joshua has a wealth of knowledge, both of NYAS and more importantly the impact and importance of our work from his own experience of the care system. I am really excited for the future of our campaigning work, through Joshua.”
