Catherine BolandNorth East

As Head of HR for the teams based in London and Newcastle I support approx. 150 employees.

We have developed a comprehensive work experience programme which is currently being delivered to students in the North East. are engaging with both teachers and students at regional schools, colleges and universities to have an impact on careers guidance and facilitate better informed choices on future career paths. My role as a North East LEP Enterprise Adviser, sees me linked to a local school to examine and advise on their enterprise strategies. When I’m not on a mission to change the careers guidance landscape, I’m enthusiastic about innovation, digital & creativity and in particular Newcastle’s thriving tech sector.
