Previously he has served in community engagement and men’s ministries through his local church, and has over 10 years’ experience working in the international aid & development sector. His Masters of Human Rights Dissertation was on ‘Faith and Justice in Public: Christians and Human Rights’.

Bianca Bryson

Director of Marketing & Communications

Bianca has worked within the marketing profession for over 12 years with the majority of that time spent within the FMCG industry for global brands. She enjoyed doing this in both Australia and the United States of America – working for brands as Walt Disney, Nestle and l’Oreal. However, in recent years she decided to take that experience and made a move into the ‘not for profit’ industry, with a specific interest in anti-human trafficking. Driving this change in industries was a passionate heart to seek justice in this world. Before her transition to IJM, Bianca worked as Marketing Director for The Freedom Project.
