I have been working in CEIAG since 2003 having worked in schools, colleges and with NEET young people and am qualified at Level 4 in Careers Advice. Prior to starting work for the Youth Employability Service East Sussex in February 2014 I worked for the National Careers Service providing careers advice and guidance to adults.

I have had a varied career path including working as a Chef, telephone engineer, IT technician and care work. I have been a qualified Counsellor since 2001 and have been a volunteer Counsellor/Supervisor/Trainer for Cruse Bereavement Care since 1997.

My role with YES East Sussex is co-locating with the Care Leavers Team and am based in Hastings.

My hobbies include, creative writing, reading, walking, cooking, travel and DIY although my better half would dispute the latter!
