More about Chartered Manager of the Year

Congratulations to our 2023 Chartered Manager of the Year

Jennifer has over 20 years’ experience tackling serious crime across different sectors. She is enthusiastic about continuous development – for herself and others, and has studied Level 4 and 6 in Operational Management and delivery with the CMI – and is currently studying Level 7. Her passion for learning spills into a passion for teaching, and Jennifer is proud to have represented the UK Government internationally to provide specialist modern slavery training. Raising awareness of exploitation and slavery makes a real difference and saves lives.

Along the way, I have learnt, through good and bad experiences, how to be a manager that inspires, motivates, and creates a team culture of support, value and achievement whilst learning where we can improve. Whatever my role, I strive to be the best I can be, regardless of the challenges I have faced and will face.
