My background is Human Resources, working as HR Manager and HR Director in a number of different businesses in the retail and service sectors. I then moved into the construction sector, operating within a Joint Venture organisation delivering construction projects within substations for National Grid. In addition to HR, training and communications, I led the safety culture programme within the organisation and worked closely with JOMC and Hill Solomon before they became Tribe, to develop and sustain a strong safety culture within the organisation comprising three different organisations. My passion is for people and for keeping people safe even when they work in potentially hazardous environments. Outside work I enjoy walking and travelling and have been a school governor for many years. Specialist subjects: Construction, retail and anywhere where safety can save lives.
