MEET THE TEAM

Hyacinth Shirley

-CEO of Genisys ARCt


GENISYS ARCt
was founded in October 2015 and works to eliminate barriers of employment in migrant communities both in the UK and Guyana, South America.

MY EXPERIENCE, stems from working with a number of Government Departments and Services, both in the UK and in my earlier years in Guyana, South America. Since embarking to the UK, I have worked as a Regional Manager for The British Armed Forces, West Midlands Fire and Police Service. I have supported a number of Campaigns as Regional Manager for The National Blood Service and The UK Home Office Connecting Communities Projects.

MY AIM is to culminate all that I have learnt in my career and utilise and support these ideals for the greater cause of helping people to thrive and grow within local communities. This is how we help individuals to gain pride of not only themselves but of their local community too. This is Genisys ARCt.
