A self-motivated, energetic and results orientated leader with a strong track record of delivery gained through a variety of posts in the public sector. I have demonstrated capability in leadership, programme and project management, strategic analysis, people management and communications including relationship building and influencing.
I have previously been a Childline counsellor and more recently chair of a local scouts group.
I'm really keen to use my professional skills and experience to the benefit of the community and wider society, to work with other people to achieve some positive outcomes for the multiple challenges which we face. I enjoy working with a wide variety of people, bringing my abilities to the table and learnign from others in terms of perspective and skills.
I'd like to deploy my professional skills in a volunteering capacity: I've been managing teams for many years now, developing staff and mentoring those outside my team. I've a lot of experience in delivering projects, developing cases for investment, engaging with and influencing stakeholders.
