Matt Dewhirst

I joined the Skillsfirst Assess team in September 2021. I've previously worked in office roles across a number of different sectors, but mainly in grant funding where I spent over 11 years. I am a certified Proofreader and Copy Editor, having achieved a Distinction-grade Diploma in July 2021. Writing has always been my passion, so I hope one day to be able to make a living from it!


Away from work, I am happily married and live in Birmingham with my wife. I love writing, reading, music, food & drink, and socialising with friends and family. I am a long-suffering Aston Villa supporter (for my sins), but hopefully things are looking brighter on that front?
