Paul Goulden, Chief Executive

I was born in the Midlands and grew up in Torbay before going to University in Kent studying politics and international relations. After uni I trained to be a chartered accountant for a year before realizing I wasn’t an accountant, and ended up running a buffet on a steam railway for a year. I then worked in political campaigning and fundraising for ten years before joining Age Concern Bromley (as it was then) as Maureen’s deputy and business manager.
Whilst there I completed a Masters degree in Voluntary Sector Management at Cass Business School and in 2009 I got the job of Chief Executive of Age UK Bexley.
