The Bridges Trust

John Lockson (Senior Employment Adviser/GetAhead Employment Adviser)

Previously Vice Chair of the Board of the Trust.

I am a single dad with two kids and two grandkids.  I've lived in Nottingham for 30 years having escaped from London in 1988; and have lived in the Meadows for almost 18 years.

I've been a union member for over 43 years; served 9 years in Her Majesty's Forces; been a recruitment consultant, a financial adviser and have been involved in local politics all my life.  I served as a Director of The Bridges Community Trust for a number of years, transferring to the Senior Employment Adviser/GetAhead Advisers role in January  2019 (a move I am thoroughly enjoying and which made me realise I should have made such a change many years ago).

My interests are: family, rugby, reading, karaoke, politics, community engagement, health and safety and malt whisky tasting.
