Timebuilders – Monitoring and Evaluation Officer

John Culver (Small)I have worked at St Marys for four months. This follows a previous career in the public and voluntary sector spanning 30 years. I began my NHS career in 1983 as a planner followed by roles in Education Welfare in Barnsley and a Race Equality Sheffield.

I returned to the NHS in 1992 where I had roles in health promotion, public health and service commissioning working in North Nottinghamshire, Barnsley and Wakefield. I was Assistant Director of Public Health in Wakefield for 5 years before taking on the role of Commissioning Improvement Facilitator. I left the NHS in 2010 to take up a research post in London with the Methodist Church of Great Britain. I then did voluntary work in South Africa again for the Methodist Church followed by part-time consultancy work for faith based organisations.

I have a BA (Hons) in Public Administration, and Master’s Degrees in Health Promotion, Public Health and Healthcare Management studying at Sheffield Hallam University, University of Nottingham and Manchester Business School.

The thing that means most to me in my present role is the opportunity to be part of a team committed to developing opportunities to enable people to grow and achieve their potential. I am enjoying working directly with people, discovering what they value most from being a Timebuilder and helping to create systems and processes which will help them realise their ambitions.
