Ian joined the SUSE Board in October 2022 and was attracted to the role through his experiences of supported employment over the last 8 years specifically working with people with learning disabilities and Autism. Ian has been involved with DFN Project SEARCH and works as the co-ordinator of the programme for a local authority. Ian’s very passionate about the role of a job coach being appreciated more in the employability landscape and feels his experiences could be beneficial to the board to support this. He looks forward to providing current experience knowledge and learnings from within the employability and economic development sector and bringing this to help support the SUSE mission.
