About the Team
Born and bred in the South East of London Jerome moved to study Biomedical Science in Nottingham in 2009. Having trouble finding employment in the field of his studies Jerome found himself working for corporate businesses, this career detour allowed him to set the foundation of Matthew 25:40.
Working in restaurants and bars he developed his love for hosting through his personal interactions when serving people.
Jerome has always had a large heart for those less fortunate providing the drive and passion to contribute towards the improvement of our nation’s homelessness crisis.
Fun fact: I love to garden and I like birds.
Previously worked within the charity sector for 3 years, supporting young people within education, which amplified his ambition to support those within deprived and marginalised groups. He has had the opportunity to work with external organisations and develop partnerships during this time; a skill which he will be able to utilise within Matthew 25:40 with regards to relationship management and cultivation.
Alex and Jerome have known each other for 15 years and have a deep understanding of our relationship. We both have the passion to execute this vision to ensure it is a successful venture.
