Mark has been  working in and around Apprenticeships for over 15 years, one of the founding members of the then National Employer Service and then leading a national training provider.  More recently I've been Chair of an Awarding Organisation as I diversified into non-executive roles in small businesses and business transformation out of the sector.  I joined Specsavers in early 2017 as part of the Global People and Organisation function, as Head of Apprenticeships. 


Over the last year Mark has defined the Specsavers strategy for Apprenticeships so that it builds out what was a narrow, single Apprenticeship programme, into a national offer for our retail stores in England through 5 Apprenticeship programmes, with the addition of Apprentices at Levels 4 to 6 across our Property, Finance, Project Management and IT teams.
