Sean has spent over 30 years working with UK public sector organisations. He has deep knowledge of, and links to, local, regional and central government operations at all levels in the UK. In 2016 Sean joined Local Partnerships from Serco where he was Managing Director of Citizen Services UK. Local Partnerships is a joint venture between the Local Government Association, HM Treasury and the Welsh Government established to provide confidence, capability and capacity to councils and combined authorities, helping them to achieve and maintain financial resilience.
At Local Partnerships, Sean has concentrated on the development of a broader range of strategic propositions, such as climate response, reform and reorganisation, and focused on efficiency for the public sector in England and Wales. As well as providing executive leadership to the organisation, Sean sits on a range of Boards as an independent advisor. He is involved in a number of programmes where he specialises in commercial negotiations, public/private partnerships, assurance, reorganisation and shared services.
Alongside his experience of central and local government, Sean brings a wealth of knowledge across the public sector, including local government, education and health. He mentors and advises senior colleagues in other public sector organisations.
In May 2020, Sean was appointed Chair of Education Support, a UK charity dedicated to improving the mental health and wellbeing of the education workforce. Education Support was initially established in 1877 as a benevolent fund for teachers, and today supports those working in higher education and further education as well as schools.
Sean was previously Chair of the Sharnbrook Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) in North Bedfordshire, between 2016-2019, and still retains a link to the Trust as a Member. He holds IRRV (Hons) and CIPFA qualifications and is a CIPFA Fellow.
