Rob Greenland is co-founder and co-director of Social Business Brokers CIC.
Rob has worked in social enterprise for most of his working life. He came to Leeds to study languages at university - and first got involved in the world of social change when he spent a year abroad as part of his course volunteering with a youth charity in Ecuador.
He worked for a number of years for a fairtrade co-operative in Leeds, and then worked in a variety of roles supporting people across West Yorkshire to set up social enterprises.
He currently mostly works on Zero Waste Leeds - and is helping the social enterprise widen their work from waste reduction to a broader focus on the circular economy. Current Zero Waste Leeds projects include Leeds School Uniform Exchange and Together For Sport.
In his spare time you’ll mostly find him outdoors - either running or cycling, and he’s a Run Director at Potternewton Parkrun.
