Based in Leeds, until 2015 Justine led KPMG’s work across the Public Sector in the North, encompassing Local Government; the NHS; Higher Education and Social Housing. Since then, whilst keeping more than one foot in the North, her substantive role is a national one as the Market Director for KPMG's Education and Skills practice - responsible for the development of our work in this sector, encompassing schools, 14-19, higher education and increasingly the wider skills agenda linked to Northern Powerhouse and devolution.
Justine leads our work with some of the largest education providers nationally as well as being at the forefront of our work in the skills space.
Justine is passionate about the evolving role of public service and the potential of working across an economic geography to change the way we currently deliver and receive services. She has a particular interest in the strategies cities and places can utilise to grow economically and the role of collaboration to achieve that.
Justine is Senior Independent Governor at Leeds Trinity University; on the Leeds and York Chamber of Commerce Leadership Board and a Fellow of the RSA.
