Invest in Youth Employability Mentor

Hi I’m Dave. I provide one to one support to people seeking to get back into work: helping them to set goals and overcome obstacles; providing expert help where I can and encouragement along the way. This is offered to people not just at Intact but across Preston and can be at any location to suit them. I have previously worked for a housing charity, in planning and funding of post-16 education, and in recruitment. My first job was at BAE Systems at Warton.

Outside of Intact, I am the Coordinator of Street Pastors in Preston – a group of volunteers from churches. I belong to Fulwood Free Methodist Church where I am also part of the leadership team. Each year I also take a team of people to visit one of the projects the church supports in Rwanda, Ecuador or India. In my spare time I enjoy walking in the lakes, going to the theatre and catching up with friends, and most winters I try to go skiing. I reluctantly go to the gym in a vain attempt to keep fit!
