Sue has worked in education, local government, PR and the charity sector as a CEO, economic and public affairs director and project manager. Her working philosophy is one of collaboration, and harnessing skills and knowledge across sectors for the greater good.
She has led projects with organisations including the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), the Department for Education (DfE), the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), Local Enterprise Partnerships, Erasmus and the Careers and Enterprise company and has extensive membership, volunteer, service development and fundraising experience. Her time as an economic development director sparked her early belief in the importance of skills development for young people and adults alike, and of the importance of finding your voice. She wants to use this experience to support the ESU to widen its community reach, and be meaningful to the next generation.
