“I am very proud and honoured to work for Les Amis and feel that the organisation will continue to develop and grow in the coming years, benefiting the people we support and the people who work with, and for us.”
Having started at Les Amis in 2008, at a crucial time in the services’ development, Shaun has a long term vision for Les Amis and a positive wider perspective on the services that they offer; enlightening people to the services offered by Les Amis as well as corroborative changes to the perspective of the public when it comes to the needs of ‘vulnerable’ groups of people in the community that benefit from Les Amis’ support - Shaun advocates a care/empathise/empower ethos for the people he serves at Les Amis.
Shaun’s background shows a dedication to people. He served in the British Army for 14 years, supporting initiatives in both Bosnia and Cyprus. After his service, Shaun undertook a new direction in his career ,completing a diploma in Community Studies focused on the charitable sector and professional community development. Beginning his new career path in the UK, he spent the following years working for a local authority in the North-East of England, supporting community safety programmes and developing partnerships across the Council with the police, education, social services, health and youth offending teams. The work and outcomes achieved from the partnership working arrangements, were recognised as best practice and the authority was awarded Beacon Status by the Government.
Shaun came to Jersey in 2005 where he worked as deputy manager at Brig-y-Don… His continued personal development has seen Shaun become a Chartered Fellow with the Chartered Management Institute and through his work with Les Amis, development and success are woven into the future of Jersey’s biggest charity.
