In order to give people an insight into the people behind BEST, we’ve asked the programme management office team to answer some simple questions for a short online profile pieces, which we are posting each Friday. This week we are featuring Executive Officer Mark Connolly:
My role at BEST… As Executive Officer I’m the first point of contact for our training partners to assist them with any issues they may have. I also support the administration functions of the programme.
An average day at the office is… Currently it’s all about training partner engagement but I work closely with colleagues involved in finance, marketing and blended learning. So, thankfully, there is no such thing as an average day.
The thing I like most about my job is… my colleagues. Nothing is too much trouble for them and everyone only wants what’s best for the programme.
The best thing about BEST is… We are developing programmes which will not only help the environment, obviously, but will also add value to the built environment workforce of wales which hopefully will make them more competitive and improve the living standards of people across wales.
I’m proudest of… Gaining my MBA.
The biggest influence in my life… Liverpool FC – more highs and lows than is healthy for one lifetime!
