YOUR JOB?

I was seconded as performance adviser to Bedfordshire CC's best value unit, but transferred in April to the county council's strategic partner, HBS, as learning and development manager, corporate and social care.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

I manage a team of eight people who provide services to Bedfordshire in learning development activities.

WHERE DOES YOUR TEAM FIT IN?

It is part of county council human resources which were transferred to HBS alongside areas of finance, IT and others in the HR group.

PREVIOUSLY?

I worked with HMSO - now the Stationery Office - lastly as corporate training manager. I came to Bedfordshire in 1997 as staff development and equal opportunities manager in education, arts & libraries then became training projects manager.

TRAINING

I qualified in training and development with the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development, and have accreditation for the European Foundation for Quality Management assessors.

PERSONALLY?

My wife works in local government and our son and daughter are both studying for degrees. I relax by reading and watching sports.

THE FUTURE?

I think the reality for the future is this type of joint operation and it is going to be the way forward

for me.
