Resources Manager One | Ministry of Defence

I currently work within the Intelligence, Surveillance, Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) Operating Centre (OC) within Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) which is part of the Ministry of Defence (MOD) organisation. In my role as resources manager my main challenge is getting the right resource into the OC…sounds simpler than it has proven to be! I work at the forefront of an OC which with has a business critical portfolio of work to deliver in the Defence arena and I keep up-to-date and on top of resourcing pressures, often using innovative ways to recruit and challenging the norm of how we have done this in the past to deliver what the OC needs. Previous to joining the MOD I was in the retail environment serving as an Assistant Manager. I really enjoy working in MOD and DE&S, it’s equipped me with skills and knowledge to progress and grow within my career.
