It’s my job to help the college to grow. I do this by speaking to schools, employers, international and local people. I ensure that the we provide the right course advice and service.

I love my job. There is so much variation. You will find me at careers events, open days and meeting local businesses to help plan training. When in the office, I can be seen designing brochures and answering questions by phone and email. In my free time I like to cycle and eat cake for balance.
