Rod is the Operations Manager and is responsible for the day-to-day running of the charity.
Rod's employment history has transitioned from working in the private and commercial sectors to the education and social work professions. After returning to Bristol University for post graduate studies in social work and applied social science, he joined Social Services in Somerset where he focused on safe-guarding and leading a team specialising in Youth Justice, children in care, care-leavers, and adolescent support. He then set up and managed the PROMISE mentoring programme and later the Route 1 advocacy service. He left the Local Authority early in 2019 to focus on the development of PROMISEworks.
As he approaches the foothills of maturity, his other interests include his family, playing saxophones and other wind instruments, electronic music, child development, avoiding the matrix and learning more about how the world really works! Rod is a registered social worker with the professional body, Social Work England.
