Sharon began her career over 27 years ago in the public sector as a Support Services Manager before taking on her current role as Director of Risk Management and Support Services.
She was specifically selected for the job by the Company Directors as it was felt her track record of achieving high standards and her personal “hands-on” approach would enable her to meet the significant responsibility of the role. Sharon’s broad range of duties allows her to use numerous skills including problem solving, risk assessment and effective communication. The broad scope of responsibility also means Sharon is frequently working to tight deadlines, which she is able to meet through effective planning and efficient time management.
In addition to her many challenging roles one of her major responsibilities has been as Management Representative for ISO 9001. During her time with JPR she has overseen the implementation of the company’s management system which provides indispensable back-up support to our Operations Team. This accreditation then lead naturally to the system improvements and Sharon now strives to achieve the coveted IOS 18001 Health and Safety accreditation and ISO 14001 Environmental Management System accreditation,
Sharon also leads on staff training and development. Achieving a Post Graduate Certificate in Adult, Further and Higher Education which is complimented with a NEBOSH Certificate in General Health and Safety and Occupational Health and NVQ Verification to name but a few. One of her key objectives is the continued progress of the company and introducing an Apprenticeship and Training Scheme in Partnership with PM Training and the CITB. With their support Sharon has been able to adapt and nurture the training needs of all staff from Apprenticeship to fully qualified and experienced to meet the high standards set by the Company and the Customer.
The importance of Risk Management and Health and Safety in the workplace is something Sharon never underestimates and she says the significant role she plays in ensuring the welfare of her staff, customers and members of the public is a constant source of satisfaction.
