Mentor and HR Consultant
I am passionate about building into people’s lives. To help people grow and develop, to recognise their God given strengths and what motivates them.
My focus is to support and develop managers and leaders as they wrestle with the demands and challenges of organisations, ministry and life.
My varied career began as a mechanical and electrical engineer. In my mid-twenties I attended All Nations Christian College, which led me to be a pastor’s assistant and then to work in missions in Pakistan for 10 years. I have a Masters in Social Science which equipped me to be a Personnel Manager for Tearfund staff working in Asia, and then to be the Head of the International HR team. In those 16 years at Tearfund I fulfilled a variety of roles in change management, pastoral care, training, and building into the lives of my team members and other staff. After 8 years as Head of HR at Mission Aviation Fellowship UK, I am now currently involved in mentoring, training and providing HR Advice to individuals and churches. Becoming a Fellow of the CIPD has broaden my understanding of organisational development and strategic thinking.
Other experiences have included being a trustee of a charity, chairing the International HR Forum of Global Connections, and the privilege of encouraging people during overseas visits. Not forgetting an abseil off a 10 storey building for charity! I am married to Jenny and have 2 grown up children.
