My background is in local government, where I worked in HR in a variety of roles. I have specialist experience in the areas of recruitment, diversity and learning and development.
I also have experience in training consultancy work for a range of organisations. I have taught for a number of educational establishments, including Stafford College, Rodbaston College, Wolverhampton University and the Open University. I joined Staffordshire University in 2000 and taught on a variety of business awards at all levels, the CIPD Professional Development Scheme and delivery of modules for Corporate Programme clients such as the Co-Op, Staffordshire Council and the RAF. I was heavily involved in schools’ liaison and student recruitment for the Business School. I also held the role of Award Leader for the ‘Business Management and Entrepreneurship‘ degree.
I joined Wolverhampton University in January 2013 as a Senior Lecturer in HRM (Human Resources Management) and my main responsibility is as Course Leader for CIPD Post Graduate Diploma in HRM. I teach HRM modules on the Postgrad Diploma and on Undergraduate and HND programmes.
I teach on CIPD Post Graduate Diploma in HRM modules: People Resourcing and Reward, Leading, Managing and Developing People and on the Undergraduate online module, Leading and Managing in Organisations. I am the Module Leader for, and teach on, the 'Investigating a Business Issue' CIPD post grad module.
In my previous institution I taught on CIPD Professional Programmes (including being the Award Leader for Certificate in Personnel Practice for several years) and HR modules on Undergraduate Awards.
I taught an MBA module for a week in Beirut in Lebanon as part of the Tempus project.
I have previously worked with a number of corporate clients –e.g. the Co-op, the RAF, and Staffordshire Council and undertaken Training consultancy work with Heart of England Tourist Board.
In my previous post I was an External Examiner for STMC, Staffordshire University’s partner College in Shanghai.
