Personal profile

Personal Statement

I currently teach across undergraduate and postgraduate modules within the Strathclyde Business School, with a specific focus on Work Psychology and HRM.
 
As a Chartered Occupational Psychologist, my experience lies within the wider field of work psychology and organisational behaviour, with particular interests in employability, career management, personal development and psychometric assessments. Prior to joining the department, I worked across private and public organisations in the UK and Middle East providing research, teaching and consultancy services to clients delivering employability and skills programmes. 
 
My research focuses on the delivery of employability theory in practice. I am currently investigating the impact of frontline delivery of public policy and government welfare contracts on the employability outcomes of long-term unemployed jobseekers – operationalising the psychological contract as a measure of the relationship between an adviser and customer.
 
An Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, I am also a registered Supervisor supporting practitioners to become Chartered Occupational Psychologists.
