Trustee - James Pomfret
James Pomfret has a background in Health & Safety having worked in several sectors including consultancy, healthcare, charity retail and most recently social housing. Working across a variety of sectors has led to a broad skillset in the field of Health & Safety and James holds memberships in the Institute of Occupational Safety & Health, The Institution of Fire Engineers, and the Chartered Management Institute.
James has been a member of the Trust Board since March 2022. He brings his experience of Health & Safety and working in organisations with a social purpose to help the Trust achieve its strategic objectives.
James grew up locally in a family of teachers with both parents and sister in the teaching profession. This sparked his interest in the education sector and ignited the desire to support a local initiative. When the opportunity to become a Trustee arose James jumped at the chance to support the Trust and help facilitate its growth.
