What attracted you to join SBC? 

Rachel wilson mop

I grew up in Swindon & it is important to me that we make Swindon the best it can be. I am passionate about the regeneration and transformation programmes & I really enjoy working with people that have a strong ambition to build on our successes and make us better.

What do you most enjoy about working here?

Every day is different- we support recruitment needs in some really challenging areas such as Social Care & Operations & I enjoy working with a diverse range of people to devise solutions to fill the skills gaps.  This also involves working with external partners & colleagues in other Local Authorities- sharing knowledge & learning.

I also get to lead on some interesting projects- continuously looking to improve the services we provide across People & Culture.

I have a great, supportive team that makes work a fun place to be.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I am a huge Swindon Town FC fan & have had a season ticket for over 25 years. My first game was the play off final at Wembley in May 1993 so I peaked straight away at that point!

I also have a young son who keeps me busy.

Where is the best place you have visited?

The Amalfi Coast for the scenery, every view was picture perfect, like a postcard.

I also loved the beaches and laid back lifestyle in Barbados.
