Jackie Ainsworth SWC Systems Developer
Staff Wellbeing Champion
I have worked in IT for over 25 years as a developer of systems and in project and service management. Alongside these technical positions I have also held mentoring and support roles; coaching and mentoring colleagues to develop their personal and professional skills, part of the Mental Health Champion network also being a member of the Wellbeing Team for a organisation where I work as a volunteer.
Everyone needs to be able to talk about the challenges they face without fear of stigma or ridicule, and I want to be an active part of allowing those conversations to happen in a supportive environment.
I love to watch movies and read books; sci-fi, fantasy, action and comedy. I play the flute; I work for the Royal Life Saving Society training young people in first aid, water safety and water rescue skills and I also help organise and run an annual camping holiday for people with disabilities.
