I was born and raised in Bournemouth. I attended Hill View Primary School myself and my son is now a pupil there.
I am Head of Human Resources and Organisational Design (HR&OD) at BH Live and have worked there for over five years. Prior to this I held senior management posts for the Post Office and Bournemouth Borough Council.
My current employer, BH Live, is an operator of leisure and event venues employing over 1600 people– it is a social enterprise that locally incorporates the BIC, Pavilion, local leisure centres and reaches across venues within the south of England.
As a member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, I have knowledge and experience in all HR related matters including employment law, TUPE, HR strategy, cultural change along with organisational design and development. I also have knowledge of the Social Enterprise Model and experience of working with a board of Trustees in BH Live.
