David spent most of his career as a public service lawyer, working initially in local government in London then in senior roles in the UK Civil Service and the EU Commission. His last, full-time role involved leading a New Zealand government department through a major programme of change.

Since returning to the UK he has concentrated on roles in the third sector and conducting reviews for organisations after critical incidents. He is also a trustee of a multi-school academy trust and Ballet Soul CIO, a dance charity focussing particularly on those from non-traditional backgrounds.

“I have seen first-hand the impacts that Migrant Help’s committed staff and volunteers have made to the lives of the, often vulnerable, but also resilient and resourceful people our charity exists to serve. I am so pleased and very privileged to be able to contribute to this work as a trustee.”
