Yvonne Hare


Yvonne Hare graduated from Trinity Leeds University after studying Communications, Advertising and Marketing.


The majority of Yvonne’s career has been spent working as a Media Planner Buyer/Media Manager in full-service advertising agencies in Yorkshire, spending 9.5 years at Poulter PLC – which at the time was the largest full-service agency outside London.  During this time, Yvonne worked on a variety of accounts, planning and buying high budget press and radio campaigns. Clients included Redrow Homes, Derbyshire Building Society and Sharp Electronics.


Yvonne has four children aged between 13 and 24.  In 2001, with three of her children under 5 and fancying a slight change, Yvonne set up her own business, a 52 cover health food and juice bar.  She ran the business successfully for two years after which she decided to sell the venture before the birth of another baby.


Now working as Head of Communications and Projects, Yvonne’s role is extremely varied – from planning and buying various marketing campaigns across the Trust, to organising internal and external events, to arranging exciting visits for our Trust Student Leaders, fundraising, staff welfare and much more.


In addition to her work for the Trust, Yvonne is also Voluntary Appeals Director for the charity Bethany’s Smile, a charity which was founded by her daughter in 2012.

From September 2019, Yvonne will join the Senior Leadership Team of the Luminate Education Group.
