As Careers and IAG Manager at Cannock Chase High School for the last 3 years, Harriet has put supporting the aspirations of young people at the heart of her work. In addition to her daily role, she volunteers with the Southern Staffordshire Skills & Employment Board and is a founding member of an Independent Careers Advice Forum. She also offers her time as a staff governor. Colleague Coleen Worrall said: “We are privileged to have such a remarkable CIAG Manager, who goes above and beyond for our students. Last year alone she conducted over 830 one-to-one careers interviews, involved over 100 businesses and HE/FE providers with our students and, in addition, organised over 35 events and PHSE activities. Our students have such a rich and diverse CIAG curriculum thanks to Harriet.”
