Prior to joining Brunel Business School, I was Deputy Director of the Professional Development Centre.  I managed a team of placement advisers and a team of admin assistants who support students, across all departments from Engineering to Arts, in securing a placement as part of their degree programme.  I am a qualified careers consultant and I chaired a national Placement Learning Task Group for AGCAS (Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services) for 8 years.  I worked at the University of Southampton before coming to Brunel.  I was recruited by Brunel Business School in Octoer 2018 as Director of Employability overseeing placement activities and graduate outcomes. 

I am leader of both the pre-placement and placement modules for undergraduates and postgraduates.  I am a member of the Institute of Student Employers and I liaise with placement and graduate recruiters on a regular basis. I am also responsible for the digital skills portal Business Life which was designed primarily to help students to gain digital skills.
