My role covers the whole university, looking at all the ways we can make sure that our graduates are equipped to get the job they want when they graduate, and to build a career which works for them over the course of a lifetime. Whether that’s ensuring access to excellent careers advice, looking at the way the curriculum supports professional and personal development or considering the wider student experience, I am keen to make sure that Cardiff Met’s students feel confident about making good career choices.

My own career has spanned private, voluntary and educational sectors, always with an emphasis on supporting people to make good decisions and acquire the skills and experience they need to make the most of their lives.  I’ve also been an active volunteer and trustee, which has helped me to keep perspective on life.

Outside work I am a keen, albeit slow, runner and an enthusiastic cook and baker.
