Dorinda leads on managing statutory funding bids for NCB.
Dorinda joined NCB in August 2018. Having previously worked as part of a large, successful bid team in the commercial sector, she brings her bid and project management experience to NCB. Identifying appropriate opportunities, Dorinda leads on providing expert advice and project management for tenders and traded income.
