Current responsibilities: : Josie is currently a Consultant Trainer for our APM qualification training department. She is a co-founder and Company Director of STEER Support and Mentoring CIC, a social enterprise which supports undergraduates in transitioning into built environment careers with a strong focus on diversity and inclusion. STEER supports students at Leeds Beckett and Nottingham Trent.

She is currently a student herself, enrolled on a DEng (Doctor of Engineering) Level 8 qualification with a research topic: Identifying successful practices for Level 6 Civil Engineering Degree Apprentices. 

Previous experience and personality: Josie was previously employed the Course Director for the MSc Engineering Degree for Leeds Beckett University, following nearly ten years of on-site management experience. 

Josie is an extremely determined and hardworking professional. She enjoys setting herself different professional challenges. Josie is a practical team player and will work to help others.  She is competent in leading teams and setting measurable objectives to work towards.  

Interests outside of work: Josie loves the outdoors and being active – and encourages her family to do the same. She enjoys swim-run events and now getting to grips with her new MTB. All of which is a good preamble to good food and wine! 

Best thing about PLP: “The organisations that I have worked for previously have all been very large, so I am excited to be working with an SME that focuses on their people, their community and with a passion for their business. PLP comes highly recommended.”
