Steven is part of the LIS team responsible for supporting the IT and Audio Visual facilities at the University of Chester as well as developing websites and online platforms to enable business partner and project communications. He is involved with a number of European projects, including ‘Directing Life Change‘, ‘Breakdown or Breakout‘, ‘Playing For Real‘ and ‘Open The Doors‘. With over 25 years experience of IT and business management, Steven is adept at finding solutions and enhancements for businesses and people.

Beginning work as a member of a design team for a Nuclear Power Station, he undertook various functions, eventually becoming more involved with the world of computing. Transferred to the Torness Power Station site in Dunbar, he lived and worked in Scotland for five years before returning to the North West to work as an Analyst Programmer for a cheque and security stationery printing company in Crewe. In the following years, Steven has worked in several manufacturing and telecoms companies in technical and managerial roles. He also ran his own retail and wellbeing businesses before being offered a position by a previous employer as a General Manager of one of their subsidiary operations. Following redundancy and not a believer in staying idle, he worked as a Night Porter & Auditor in Hotels before successfully applying for a job with the University of Chester.
