Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL)

As Head of Media, Zoe supports the Communications Director at the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) to make sure it is delivering the greatest impact. Whether it's across digital, landmark publications, social media or global campaigns, Zoe uses her journalistic background to find external media platforms for all the impressively varied people and reports at CISL.


Before joining CISL in 2023, Zoe worked at Channel 4 News as Head of Planning where she had to oversee all the domestic newsgathering coverage. Previous to that she worked at ITV News where she was Westminster News Editor during the pandemic, which involved sending a lot of camera crews to doorstep Matt Hancock.  

Prior to that, Zoe was a producer at Sky News in Westminster where she spent many years grilling politicians. Her first job was at LBC Radio working on a night-time phone-in show. One of her favourite phone in topics was ‘Flans vs Quiches.’ 

Zoe has always interested in sustainability and after 15 years working as a journalist felt it was time to work with people who are actually trying to do something to make the world a better and greener place to be.
