Jude joined the LEP in June 2016 as an Enterprise Partnership Officer for the Skills team. Jude has many years’ experience working in various social inclusion roles for City of York Council including the Traveller and Ethnic Minority Support Service and more recently delivering European Social Funded contracts with a private training organisation around Leeds, York and North Yorkshire.
Jude will be utilising her experience to lead on the LEP social inclusion strategy and will be working hard to remove the barriers to employment and build inclusive communities within our region.
Outside of work, when Jude’s not being a taxi service for her teenage kids, she loves nothing more than digging in the garden. She loves to grow her own fruit and veg for the pot and will happily feed anyone who will let her!
