I have had a varied career history including 20+ years in the pharmaceutical industry including research, purchasing and project management. This was followed by 9 years in education as a secondary maths and business studies teacher as well as a short period in post 16 provision. I currently work for a south coast MP in a caseworker role where I am able to use my life and work experience to assist constituents with their concerns.
I have recently joined Langstone Junior School as a Governor so I can maintain my contribution to the education community and am keen to ensure that within this role I can offer support based on a personal understanding of the challenges faced by staff and pupils. As a new Governor I recognise that I must extend my knowledge base of the role to maximise my value to the Governing Body.
As a parent who has two children attending Langstone Junior School, I care very much about the school, its educational standards, facilities and environment.
I work locally for a manufacturing company as an Environmental Manager and also have additional skills and experience in accounts, site facilities management and Health & Safety. This helps me to understand, support and challenge, where appropriate, the issues discussed at Governing Body meetings and committees.
I have been a school governor for almost two years and I am currently the Chairman of the Finance and Facilities Committee.
Been a governor for about 10 years and I am currently Vice chair. Interests- Music, theatre, sport (season ticket holder at Fratton Park), Religion and politics. Occupation- I own my own logistics business.
