Work history

About me

I have over 37 years’ experience in the design, development, implementation and delivery of business critical Information Management systems.  I have over 25 years of Programme and Project Management experience. I have earned a reputation for on-time, on-budget and high quality completion of high profile multi-million pound projects using multi-disciplined teams of up to 50.   I have  had P/L responsibilities (financial planning, monitoring and sign off) for budgets in excess of £5M. 

I always plan, organise, motivate, monitors and control the tasks/activities within my area to ensure that they are delivered on time.  I work closely with the project team, actively supervising to monitor progress and addresses any deviations from plans as soon as they occur.

I am a Team Player who is eager on building strong relationships with my colleagues and maintaining a high level of team morale. I am supportive of his peers, colleagues and staff and have a friendly approach.  

I believe I can use my organisation skills, my planning skills and my Line Management skills to support my work as a Volunteer when I retire End of September 2021. 

I currently sponsor a child in Bangladesh and have supported via my salary other charities including WaterAid.

I now wan't to give more of my time to Volunteer Work and learn new skills to help others.

What am I looking for

To start with I am happy to offer myself to any volunteering opportunities to allow myself to get into Charity Work.

But having been in Senior Roles , I can offer my organisation skills, my planning skills and people skills to good causes in more Senior Volunteer roles if available.

As mentioned above I am currently sponsoring a child in Bangladesh.   I give money monthly.   I am keen to volunteer for roles where I can help others either home or overseas.   This could be helping the homeless, to a wider role in supporting overseas Charity Work.
