I have a wealth of experience in managing soft services within Private healthcare, Universities and in manufacturing environments.

I previously worked as a Soft-Services manager with Sodexo, reducing operating costs by introducing a lean management approach and raised the profile of health and safety.

I have gained healthcare experience through Nuffield Health and BMI healthcare at a number of private hospitals and represented a number operations managers at a corporate level.

At Nuffield, I achieved Benchmarking Award for the way I controlled the costs, and was also responsible for leading the investors in people process at Chester Nuffield hospital and coordinated the care-quality commission audits.

I have a wealth of over 20yrs experience of working within some major local companies such as Trinity Mirror, BNFL, and the waste disposal section for what was Cheshire County Council.

My last role involved managing property repairs for Admiral Taverns on over 900 public houses, and making sure that all relevant insurances were in place.

Having helped make Admiral pub company of the year I decided that it was the right time for a change, and hopefully with the help of the team around me, and all our staff out in the school, we can make Edsential just as successful.
