About Me
Jaki Field
Operations Manager
Among many things, I run the homeward bound service, coordinate assessments, diarise jobs and organise waste disposal. My background is in social housing and so I know a thing or two! Initially, I joined Lofty Heights CIC in 2016 for six months, but I soon realised this was the job for me!
About Me
Kelly Murphy
Operations Assistant
I have only just started with Lofty Heights but I received a very warm and friendly welcome. I am very much enjoying it here and am looking forward to the future.
About Me
Georgina Salmon
Specialist Declutter Officer
I joined Lofty Heights CIC in 2017 following a career as a qualified social worker. I knew that I would have the skills required to help declutter homes sensitively. I see families reunited once we’ve made a home more accessible, and there’s nothing more rewarding than that!
About Me
David Olding
Team Leader
I’ve worked with Lofty Heights CIC from the start before we even had the first of what would turn into hundreds of jobs. I was appointed team leader in 2016, and I’ve got to say, I thoroughly enjoy my job. The best part about it, without a doubt, is that we change lives on a daily basis.
About Me
Clive Reed
Declutter Operative
As soon as I joined Lofty Heights as a driver operative, I immediately noticed just how close-knit the team is. Quite honestly, I’d struggle to think of a more rewarding role than driving around Suffolk helping vulnerable people to live safely in their own homes. Every day is different!
About Me
Daniel Scott
Declutter Operative
Although, at the time of writing, I hadn’t been at Lofty Heights very long (I joined in April 2021), I must say that the training has been fantastic. Immediately, I was paired with a more experienced team member and I can already see this being a role that I will enjoy for many years to come.
About Me
Mark Wilding
Declutter Operative
As a handyperson and cleaning operative, it’s fair to say that no two days are the same at Lofty Heights. I am so glad that I joined. When people ask me what I do, I am proud to say that I am part of a team that provides much-needed support to the local community.
About Me
Curtis Beadle
Social Media & Marketing Assistant
I began my journey with Lofty Heights in 2018 as work experience through Talent Match, a programme that operated at the time matching unemployed young people with employers. At the start, I had anxiety, but everyone was so kind, calm and incredibly hard-working. It’s a real joy to work here.
About Me
Wendy Jordon
Accounts Assistant
My name is Wendy, and I’ve worked at Lofty Heights CIC since August 2020 as an Accounts Assistant. In that time, I like to think that I’ve applied the ‘Lofty Heights’ treatment to the internal accounting process by introducing QuickBooks and other new processes.
About Me


Olive Quinton
I set up Lofty Heights CIC in 2012 to enable people to live safely, securely and healthily in their homes and provide employment and training opportunities to young people in Suffolk. I couldn’t be prouder of the team and the strides we’ve made in delivering on this promise.
About Me
Rob Hart
General Manager and Non-Executive Director
My business background is in construction. When I first met Olive, I was her business mentor. I became immersed in Lofty Heights and its mission to help young and vulnerable people. When I was offered the role of Non-Executive Director in 2016 and then General Manager in 2019, I had to accept.
