I previously worked as a Prison Officer for 3 years within the specialist juvenile unit. Within this role I was also an MMPR Co-Ordinator which entailed me to teach my colleagues de-escalation techniques such as communication and how to deal with high end scenarios in a secure setting and also how to restrain prisoners safely and effectively.
I have over 10 years’ experience within the private sector as an Employment Advisor/Tutor with Working Links and Manpower UK. I have helped individuals with a number of work related issues which includes wellbeing, returning to work and staying in work. I am a Mental Health, MAPPA and Ready for Work champion working all over South Wales.
I was also a Benefit processor with the Department of Work and Pensions so I have excellent knowledge of the benefits system.
