I joined Skillsfirst Awards in 2011 as Business Development Manager and after 6 years was promoted to my current role of Head of Business Development. I previously spent over 10 years managing a very successful assessment team within the Business Development Directorate of a large FE college in the Midlands. Prior to that I was a NVQ Product Manager for the Post Office national training team embedding NVQs across the business. My past experience, I feel, gives me a greater understanding of what our customers need in terms of working with a reliable, flexible and responsive awarding organisation.
I am married with a son at Sheffield University, enjoy holidaying both abroad and in the UK, walking my two Border Collie dogs, watching everything CSI, keeping reasonably fit, cooking (and drinking), and socialising with friends. I also love going to concerts too!
