I am a Research Fellow linked to the EUROSHIP: Closing gaps in social citizenship. New tools to foster social resilience in Europe project.
Prior to commencing doctoral research I worked for fifteen years within the trade union environment. I held full industrial responsibility for a range of public and private sector employers, carrying out all negotiations for pay and terms and conditions. I represented members with those employers up to the point of tribunal on all workplace issues. I have a sound understanding of employment, equality and diversity issues and the legislative framework within which they operate.
As a PhD researcher I have worked as a doctoral tutor on the Justice, Equality and Society, and Introduction to Business Law modules. I have gained AFHEA status.
I am also part of the Equality Committee for LPS.
