Civil Servant for most of my working life apart from a couple of years working for Mencap and worked in Australia on a student visa in my early 20s. The bulk of my civil service career has been with the Department for Education where I have worked in a range of leadership roles including policy development (Qualifications reform, academies policy), school improvement, Free Schools project/programme delivery and most recently further education policy and covid response.
Substantial experience leading successful teams, coaching and developing staff and managing performance to meet agreed vision/objectives. Solid appreciation of financial management having had responsibility for multi-million-pound free school projects and departmental budgets. Policy development, communications and organisational skills are other areas of strength.
