In 2013 Alice became a Lawyer after years of hard work but still felt something was missing. In 2015 Alice decided that in her spare time she would do some amazing things, not just for charity but to help people. She set up her own blog - Challenge Alice - and undertook some pretty impressive endeavours. She lived for a month on £1 per day, she was a radio presenter in a hospital, she had to befriend a person every day for a month and even see how far she could get to in Europe with no money or food in 7 days, raising money for Alzheimers research along the way. These are just a few of her amazing achievements; but now she is ready to take on The Nicest Job in Britain!

Natalie is a mother, a nurse, a carer, a humanitarian, and hobbyist alternative model. During her 8 years of Hospital Nursing, she has cared for everyone, literally from birth, until their last breath. More recently she has worked with vulnerable children in care. Her career has involved liaising with multiple charities in the Third Sector, from referring patients to charity run Hospices (adults and children alike), to Specialist condition/disease support charities and assistance with practical help. Natalie herself has, during a difficult few years of her life, benefited from charitable support for her sick child, homelessness and setting up a new life. Over the past year, using her nursing skills and passion for people, Natalie has worked with multiple NGO's to provide care and fundraise for the refugee crisis. Natalie has also used media attention she drew when she rescued a woman form the Thames during a photoshoot, the benefit of the charity RNLI & raising awareness of the humanitarian Crisis.
