I have worked in IT since 1982 for a variety of organisations ranging from a Building Society through the NHS and local government to a Housing Association. I have specialised in Applications Support working on an array of systems but focussing in more recent years on Payroll and HR systems. Ruskin is my first foray into the education sector.
I have had experience in many different environments so am used to having to adapt to new systems and unfamiliar requirements. Hopefully this will stand me in good stead in learning all about adult education.
I had always been aware of Ruskin College since working for the first time in Oxford in the early 1980s and attending meetings in the college building on Walton Street. When my previous employer based in Worcester decided to downsize the department I worked in and my current position at Ruskin became available, it seemed like a good opportunity to work closer to home and find out what Ruskin is all about.
