To say that last week was one of the most  challenging of my career would not do it justice!

It culminated in a two day interview process for the position of Executive Director of Education and Children’s Services – the post I’ve been acting up into for the last 20 months. The  process was supported by SOLACE enterprises who conducted themselves in an exceptionally professional manner throughout.

I found the process to be exhaustive, rigorous, well-balanced and demanding.  I was hugely impressed by my fellow candidates and was delighted and relieved when I was offered the post.

My most sincere thanks to all colleagues who have patiently supported me over this time.  It’s a real privilege to work with you.
