Roger is a retired qualified accountant having spent all his working life in Milton Keynes – initially for 15 years at the Development Corporation and then for 24 years at The Open University, where he was formerly Head of Treasury Services, The Open University. He is actively involved in a number of charities in the area covering a broad range of community life – a centre for seniors, a uniformed boys organisation, a locally-based overseas relief charity and varied activities in church life.
Having experienced poor careers advice as a teenager, I am keen that young people today have access to the information they need to raise aspirations and work towards long-term goals. I also believe that local employers benefit from improved potential and motivation in young people entering the local job market. The Workout activity is a real win/win benefit for the local community.
