Most of my career has been spent in the delivery of Welfare to Work Programmes on behalf of the Dep't of Work and Pensions. During this time I have been involved in the setting up of programmes and delivery of both mandated and voluntary provision. I have also had the opportunity to work with local communities to build capacity and supporting those moving back into work. It is during this time that I have had the most job satisfaction and developed my understanding of the importance and value of volunteering.
I have been a school governor for over 15 years for a local Primary school, am currently Deputy Chair of Gov's.
In my spare time I enjoy watching and getting involved in competitive sport, in particular, running, athletics, rugby and golf.
