Anisah Akhtar

From a degree in Education and Philosophy from UCL, to starting my career off in the Student Recruitment field, I fell into PR in your not-so traditional way. I am now Head of Student Experience and Corporate Communications for one of the oldest, largest and most academically successful sixth form colleges in the country. Call it luck, or fate but I couldn’t have chosen a more perfect career for myself. I am the youngest female, ethnic minority Head of Department in the colleges history! (I don’t know how that happened either) but I would not be where I am without the support of my family, my incredible boss and community that I am honoured to be part of. I am a born and bred Lutonian (if you’ve never visited, please come!) Luton is a thriving place to live and work in so many ways, and to be able to showcase my town on a national platform with the opportunities I am given is something I take as a privilege.

I am also a Trustee of Level Trust, Ambassador for Step Forward Luton and more recently won the Asian Women of Achievement Award for Young Achiever of the Year 2023
