Before joining Guy’s and St Thomas’ in 2004, Karen worked within Human Resources in five different public sector organisations. She now heads the Workforce team for Essentia, an essential part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust which designs, builds and maintains healthcare infrastructure vital to the smooth running of healthcare services. Attracting, retaining and developing talented people in non-clinical roles has been a key focus for Karen who has helped create an Academy to develop employees, build an award-winning apprenticeship scheme to recruit in the community and supported, as a Governor, the opening in September of the Southbank University Technical College to develop an Engineering talent pipeline.
