Meet the Leadership Team
Interim Chief Executive
Having worked within the Further Education sector for the last 19 years, I am an advocate of lifelong learning and committed to ensuring individuals have access to opportunities to learn skills which make a positive impact on their lives and the communities they live in. Throughout my career I have helped businesses with their talent attraction, skills development, and succession planning strategies as I truly believe people are businesses greatest asset when they are nurtured and developed. My role is instrumental in securing business growth for the benefit of the people and businesses we support. When not working I enjoy spending time with family and friends and undertaking property renovations.
Director of Programmes
I have two decades of successful experience within the FE and Welfare sectors. I am a target oriented Senior Manager and Director with wide and successful experience in the management of strategic change programmes, commercial training and contract management. I am a hands-on problem solver with a high rate of achievement and an appetite for new challenges, I am a strong believer in the power of positive thinking in the workplace. I am a family man with three young boys so spend the majority of my time driving them to various sporting events but I can also be found with my head under the bonnet of a car as I am passionate about restoring VW Beetles.
I have a wealth of experience helping young people and adults progress into work and training. As a trained advice and guidance specialist myself, I lead high-quality careers advice across our services.
Head of Human Resources
I'm passionate about making Futures a great place to work through championing our values, with a clear focus on our business priorities. I strive to understand how people and teams can work to their full potential for the good of those we support.
Head of Business Development and Fund Raising
I'm motivated by using my business development skills to help support the most vulnerable people achieve their goals. Throughout my career I've enabled organisations to deliver vital services through generating the funds they need to do more. I spend most of my free time with my family. Every weekend is whirlwind of swimming lessons, karate camps and trips to the park, I wouldn't have it any other way. When I occasionally have spare time without my children I play the guitar, write and like to run.
Executive Assistant to the Board, CEO and Corporate Relationship Manager
I work to ensure the board, CEO and the team are able to concentrate on the bigger aspects of leadership. I'm dedicated and focused on the future, supporting the implementation of key actions. I enjoy cycling and spending time with family and friends.
