Natasha Veenendaal

Head of community and engagement


My role is to ensure that Jisc creates and sustains amazing spaces for members to share, learn and collaborate. I work with community managers across Jisc and at members to support inclusive community engagement. I encourage approaches that enable collaboration - for product and service development, coproducing content, or member experience.


I have built a career on connecting people, initially in live events, first for the finance section and then technology – digital marketing, app development, cloud computing, moving to building communities that have connected local authority IT leaders, and people across a range of roles in education and research.
