I have worked for the Department for Work and Pensions in all its forms for over 30 years. Previously working on Industrial Relations, Communications, Partnership and Contract Management at a Regional and District level.
I returned to operational duties managing Jobcentres in Birmingham and Solihull. In April 2015 I moved back to the Black Country District, initially as Sandwell Employer and Partnership Manager; I then managed the Troubled Families and Support for Schools Teams; currently I am the Partnership Manager for Walsall & Wolverhampton and have District leads on Disability and Care Leavers.
DWP’s role in the Walsall for All pilot will be to support integration by helping women from all the communities to access employment, training or educational opportunities.
On a personal note, I live in Walsall and one of my interests is walking, having completed Hadrian’s Wall, Pennine Way and the Coast to Coast route. The next project is to walk the English coastline, so far I have covered 300 miles, with only another 5581 to do.
