Can you give a brief overview of your role at the Trust and some information about your career so far?
I work closely with the whole Estates Family to deliver an efficient and streamlined service across the Trust ensuring we deliver and maintain safe and inspiring environments for our children, students, and staff to flourish. Utilising my experience in construction I can channel the knowledge and experience gained in to imaginative and forward-thinking ideas and solutions to maintain and enhance our schools and colleges whilst always offering best value to the Trust.
What do you enjoy most about working for the Trust?
Trust life is a new experience for me and one very different from that of the construction industry, one thing that stands out is the overwhelming enthusiasm and drive to deliver the very best on all levels to our children and students, this is a lovely and refreshing approach and one that I am proud to be part of.
How would you describe your team/ people you work with?
I am surrounded by a team of dedicated, hardworking, and experienced individuals who go above and beyond daily to deliver the highest level of service possible, they are genuine, generous and caring individuals who put others before themselves on a regular basis.
Biggest challenges that you face within the sector
Biggest challenge is the demand for our services versus our resources and fund availability.
If you could tell your younger self one thing, what would it be?
Don’t take yourself so seriously all the time.
