Julia Nix, the new Director of the East of England Skills and Competitiveness Partnership
The future is bright for the East of England Skills and Competitiveness Partnership
(EESCP) as it prepares for the arrival of its new director, Julia Nix
Julia has been appointed the director of EESCP, which was set up earlier this year to deliver step-change in the skills and business performance of the region.
The partnership combines the expertise of all the public skills and business support commissioners and delivery managers in the region.
For the past 22 years Julia has been employed by Jobcentre Plus, and formally the Employment Service.
She joined the former Employment Service as a casual administrative officer and progressed her career through a number of different roles in offices across Cambridgeshire and Norfolk.
In 2004 she was appointed job broking manager, responsible for seven Jobcentres across Cambridgeshire - three of which have become fully rolled out Jobcentre Plus offices.
As a result of her
many years working in the East of England Julia will bring a high level of expertise to her
new role including detailed knowledge of the region's skills needs and challenges that face employees and employers.
said: 'I am excited and delighted at this opportunity to shape policies and strategies, bringing together a range of partners who will work with businesses to address their skills needs.'
Julia will take up her new post on 14 November from interim director Teresa Logan.
Partnership chairman, David Marlow, who is also chief executive of EEDA, said: 'I would like to warmly welcome Julia to the partnership.
I am looking forward to working with Julia
on taking forward the actions that have been identified in the partnership's 'Response to the White Paper'.
