Employer Engagement Lead

My role with bemix is Employer Engagement Lead with the Supported Internships team.

"What does that mean?" - Well, I spend my time speaking with businesses to find the right Internship placements for the young adults that join the Supported Internship Programme.

As a team, we make sure that the work placements are 'job-matched' to the right person. We take time to find out career aspirations and work with them to discover the right roles, so they can make the right choices. This way there will be a much higher chance that the internships become jobs, at the end of the programme.

I am passionate about working for bemix and feel privileged to witness the huge difference in each person, from when they began the course, to when they move forward into adulthood with far more confidence and options.

I am currently completing a Level 3 Certificate for Supported Employment Practitioners, which provides a guide to how we should progress and support young people.

At home, I am married with three boys, two cats and love riding my mountain bike and road bike whenever I can.
