Ross joined Young Devon in May 2017 and is currently a Programme Manager for Plymouth City Council. Ross heads up a team of Change Project Managers working to increase organisational efficiencies and simplify processes, access to and delivery of services for staff and customers. In this role Ross has developed a Customer Service Strategy, overseen the development and launch of a new website and delivered savings in excess of £3m.

Ross, who was born and attended school in Plymouth, has a strong passion for empowering young people, formed from his personal experiences as a young man trying to find his way and cope with a young family following leaving school part way through his A-levels. Ross has used these struggles and experiences as a driver for self-improvement and has developed a strong commitment to personal and professional development. This attitude has led to various project and programme management qualifications, a certificate and a diploma in social sciences and a post graduate certificate in Organisational Leadership all achieved over the past few years.

Ross loves to spend time with his children, watching sport and keeping fit.
