Introducing Our Director of People
The Anglian Learning Central Team recently welcomed our new Director of People, Caroline Newman. Leading our existing central Human Resources team, one of Caroline’s key responsibilities is to develop and deliver our new people strategy.
Caroline began her HR career in 2000 at Sainsbury’s where she worked in a range of HR roles including Regional HR Manager and HR Change Manager. She has also held posts in the leisure industry and local government. Prior to joining Anglian Learning Caroline spent 13 years at the University of Cambridge, most recently as Head of HR for the School of Clinical Medicine. At the Clinical School, Caroline was responsible for the HR strategy and the operational HR service to over 3000 staff across 21 academic departments. Caroline is passionate about wellbeing within the workplace and successfully developed and embedded the Clinical School’s wellbeing programme. Caroline was also a trustee for Mind in Cambridgeshire between 2015-2018.
Caroline said: “I am excited about joining the Trust and passionate to work on the people strategy to develop a positive working culture where staff would recommend Anglian Learning as a great place to work whilst building our employer brand”.
Since joining Anglian Learning at the beginning of January 2023, Caroline has been visiting our schools and establishing working relationships with staff across our Trust.
