Jenny Sanderson

Analyst

Jenny joined PPL as an Analyst, having received a Distinction in her Master’s Degree in Health Psychology at UCL. Her MSc research focused on the impact the COVID-19 pandemic had on the quality of life and mental health of older people receiving care, developing her skills in quantitative data analysis and evaluation.

Prior to PPL, Jenny worked in consultancies specialising in organisation design and healthcare public affairs strategies. She successfully co-designed and implemented a new organisational change model for training delivery at a major airport and also liaised with government officials and NHS senior leaders as part of stakeholder engagement strategies to gain NICE approval for rare disease therapies in the UK.

Jenny also worked in the UK public sector as a frontline healthcare worker in a secure mental health hospital, and for Surrey County Council. At Surrey, Jenny reviewed evidence and prepared policy briefings for social care reform proposals, critical in the local council’s response to the UK Government’s recent Health and Social Care White Paper.

Jenny enjoys volunteering for several international and local charities, including in mental health hospitals and special needs schools, working with marginalised communities. She has pursued her interest in social impact, coaching and event management through voluntary projects with the mental health listening service Nightline and education access charities Target Oxbridge and Schools Plus. Her successful organisation and facilitation of charity events, including charity balls, as Vice President of Oxford Raise And Give (RAG) raised over £40,000.

Jenny holds a BA (Hons) in Experimental Psychology from the University of Oxford.
