Julia Haig

Chief Executive Officer

We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better. – J.K. Rowling


The role of Girlguiding Anglia is to deliver the business of Girlguiding UK in Anglia Region.  As CEO I’m responsible for advising trustees and taking the lead in developing Girlguiding Anglia’s strategic plan to ensure implementation and delivery of its aims and objectives.  I value the opportunity of working with a range of diverse volunteers who all have different professional backgrounds so that collectively we are better together.  I enjoy listening to and acting upon the voices of our girls, young women and volunteers to ensure Girlguiding Anglia’s delivery is based on need.

As someone who was a guide, I strongly believe that all girls and young people should have the opportunity to experience what Girlguiding has to offer.  I live in Norfolk with my partner and spend my spare time running, reading and catching up with friends. I’m a keen singer and gardener and when time allows I love being in the mountains.

I would describe myself in 3 words as positive, supportive and focused.

My team describes me in 3 words as observant, committed and focused.
