I volunteer in the community, offering support and counselling in the LGBT community, it is good to be able to help to support others, inside and outside of work. I also sit as a magistrate in South Wales. I certainly know and have appreciated first-hand the benefits of a good support network.
I am a Senior Operations Manager based in Abbey Wood. There are great opportunities in the MOD, with an incredibly varied range of jobs. In 2017, I was the Service Delivery Manager for Food, it is hard to think of a bigger contrast in a finished product that I could manage. It indicates that if you can listen, deliver and demonstrate that you have the skills and potential there is a good job within the MOD for you.
I am proud of the diverse and inclusive population that I see throughout the MOD, both civilian and military. Sometimes as an individual you may have an internal dilemma, be it choosing piece of fruit or a slice of cake, knowing your next development move. You have a good network of colleagues here at the MOD. Managers who can guide your career, mentors to discuss options with and colleagues to support you. You are a great individual, who is part of a strong team, a team who are there for you.
