I’m the Service Manager for Kirklees Employment Service. I have been very lucky to work with such a wide range of inspiring individuals who have used our service, and seen so many different talents and skills they have to offer.
Originally a Service User with the employment service, I joined as a team member in 2017! I truly understand the process our customers are going through and use this to inform our Peer Support Workshops and Groups. I love the range of people I meet through my role.
Originally trained as a musician and a Primary School Teacher, I joined the Employment Service in 2017. In 2019 I left to get some experience of working in a Vets but soon came back in 2021. After a small secondment to manage one our 24hr Housing Services I am now fully back doing what I love - supporting people to realise and achieve their potential!
I have been with Richmond Fellowship for 10 years! Originally, I worked in the floating support service but have come across to the employment service in 2019. The thing I most enjoy is seeing people increase their confidence and self-belief!
I have carried out various roles before coming to the Richmond Fellowship, including, the armed services,
administration roles within the construction sector, jointly running a steel fabrication company and being a production manager for a tool manufacturer.
I hope this experience will help me to support people who need to use our service, and I look forward to working with our customers.
I have worked with the employment service since it started in 2012! I love getting out and about and meeting clients and showing them what they can achieve.
