Tom Beaumont was born and raised in Norfolk but moved to Cornwall in 2008 to study Film at Falmouth University. Falling in love with the landscape and way of life, he spent a few years after graduation working as a salesperson before joining ShelterBox - the Cornish-based international disaster relief charity - in 2015. It was here that he committed to working within the third sector.

In 2018, he seized an unexpected opportunity to become HR Manager at St Petrocs, overseeing the people processes for approximately 40 employees. He completed his initial studies in HR practice during the Covid-19 pandemic and is an accredited member of the CIPD.

Tom is passionate about inclusivity, and since joining, he has focussed his efforts on making St Petrocs the best possible place for work for everybody - no matter who they are or what they look like. In his spare time, you'll find him reading, drinking coffee, or eating good food. He is also an active member of a small local church, where he met his wife. Together, they have two young boys.
