All About STEM AMBASSADOR
Paul works for AstraZeneca, a global bio-pharmaceutical, involved in researching, developing and manufacturing medicines to be used by millions of patients worldwide. He is a Chartered Engineer with the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) – which basically means he is recognised in the UK as a professional engineer. Although not in an engineering role at the moment, he still uses a lot of engineering skills on a day-to-day basis. He is also a School Governor at his daughter’s primary school.
Paul’s current job role is Global Quality Director at AstraZeneca’s Macclesfield Campus in Cheshire. He is responsible for setting quality standards and procedures for the company’s 29 manufacturing sites, ensuring that the medicines you take do what they should do.
Why do you enjoy being a STEM Ambassador?
‘I want to help promote STEM subjects, particularly engineering, to school pupils from across the NorthWest; to show that there are many different routes to get a job, via both apprenticeships and academia.’
Paul also volunteers at The Big Bang North West every year!
‘I always look forward to seeing all the children enjoying themselves at the many interactive stands, shows and exhibits – bringing STEM subjects to life!!’
