Hi, I am Liam Turnbull. I currently work for a local Financial Advice firm, which specialises in Pensions and Capital Investment. I studied Law at University and have since completed the Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning.
Before working in finance, I worked in various roles, including a local charity delivering community-based projects, and where I also assisted the management in researching and preparing applications for grant funding and tendered contracts. I then moved to the private sector, where I worked in a local firm's Sales Contracts department, submitting competitive tenders for contracts to supply workplace consumables.
I like listening to and playing music (though the latter seems to have taken a backseat after having kids). I play golf a lot, and I read a lot (mainly non-fiction).
I am from Hull, and I love my city.
I wanted to help out with this project as I believe that the Library of Stuff will improve its residents' lives by creating a common treasury of items, thereby discouraging people from taking on unsustainable levels of personal debt by purchasing expensive, yet seldom used tools and equipment. The project will encourage people to think more sustainably about the items they buy and to think twice before throwing them away.
