Welcome Jayne Garner FIEP, our new Fellow
The IEP are delighted to announce that Ingeus’ Jayne Garner has become the Institute’s latest Fellow.
Jayne has a wealth of experience in Employment Related Services built over 15 years and spanning Skills, Outreach and Employability. She has worked directly with a range of Commissioners, from DWP, Local Commissioners, SFA and ESF funding streams and managed a number of Ingeus sites across the North West of England.
In line with the IEP’s ethos of promoting the importance of continuous professional development, Jayne has undertaken additional qualifications to support her career such as CIPD and Leadership and Management Level 4. She has also been identified as a mentor and coach to other managers on the Work Programme delivery and has championed staff for future management roles, supporting them to apply for accredited management training and progressing them through to completion with the aid of coaching.
Jayne said “My motivation is very much about providing services to support disadvantaged people. The Greater Manchester Working Well provision, of which I am Head of Delivery, is a challenging programme which supports long-term unemployed people with health conditions and complex barriers to move towards and gain sustainable work. I believe there is work for everyone and for those who may not achieve this goal during the time on the programme, Working Well must provide a positive impact to the wellbeing and lifestyle for the people who take part.”
Jayne has undertaken a number of activities outside of her normal role. In November 2016 she was awarded a Silver Stevie Award (Women in Business- Employee of the Year category) for the work that her and her team contributed to Greater Manchester and the success of Working Well. She has supported the other Working Well providers and competitors in practical delivery, resulting in streamlining processes and resulting in a joint approach to performance reporting.
On becoming an IEP Fellow Jayne said “We have made a series of commitments for our InWorkGM team including recording 33000 hours of CPD and 875 volunteer days to invest in their development. This is one of our Social Value commitments across the Alliance Partnership. I am delighted to promote IEP’s vision and values as a fully-fledged Fellow of the Institute. I believe our people are our most valuable resource and that they require support and investment to operate successfully in future programmes. Our staff teams are about to secure their individual IEP membership through Ingeus, and I hope to champion the resources and the sharing of best practice by encouraging full use of this membership.”
IEP Chairman Scott Parkin FIEP said “Jayne has considerable experience in the profession and brings many skills that will benefit our membership in many ways. On behalf of the IEP, I am delighted to welcome Jayne to the Fellowship and we look forward to utilising her extensive knowledge and experience to further the IEP’s aims and objectives.”
