 - Enterprise Co-ordinator -  

Somerset

I love my role as Enterprise Coordinator as my work impacts so many more students than in my previous role, developing student skills and careers aspirations across 20 schools in Somerset.

Prior to my role of Enterprise Coordinator, I worked in education as Careers Lead and Employability Co-ordinator and in a Sixth Form with responsibilities for creating and running the Direct to Work Programme and managing UCAS applications. Before this I was the Seasonal Logistics Manager for Somerfield Head Office managing all seasonal products for 1200 stores. I worked for a small engineering company and after university I started my career in the Motor Trade as a Service Manager.

I love travelling, particularly the Spanish culture, weather and cuisine. In the UK my passions are my two cockapoo dog and Lindt Chocolate!”
