Our Patrick is in the chair!
It was so interesting for Patrick to be on the other side of the fence on this occasion as he was facing a tough interview process of his own. Given our business ethos is all about the right fit and ensuring the right candidate for the role, Patrick was able to showcase his talents and present just why he was the right person to take this position.
Having been approached about a range of non-executive positions supporting organisations previously, it was this one that really appealed.
Patrick has a wealth of industry experience so can bring a solid commercial insight to the table and coupled with a passion for further education, this is a fantastic opportunity for Patrick to really showcase his passion for the development of the next generation.
During his career Patrick has always been involved with people and performance – he has worked across the globe and been instrumental in process improvement, change management, product development and innovation. This level of expertise matches so well with the visions of the college. In addition, Patrick has been involved with other projects within the Bishop Auckland area, so he has a particular interest in highlighting the range of talents and opportunities the area has to give.
