Danya Defraytus

Youth & Employment Services Manager

As a Team Leader within Compass Support, I am responsible for the day-to-day management of the services delivered by the Education and Employment Team. We are a small team of dedicated people who work together to support customers through our Job Clubs, Employability & Wellbeing Coaching, Employment Skills programme and schools career guidance. 

“I have a passion for helping people and finding solutions to challenges. I love the variety involved in supporting the many projects that we deliver and getting to meet our customers every day. If I find an issue or a need, then I’ll try my hardest to help and solve it.”

My career has been dedicated to engaging with people of all ages and from all backgrounds. I began as a Community Artist, working with community groups across the UK. I then qualified as a College Lecturer before moving into employability and becoming a Job Coach.
