RoleBuilding Facilities Manager
Philip graduated with a Degree in Physics from Southampton University in June 1998 and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education in 1999. He spent approximately 12 years teaching GCSE and A Level Physics in a number of Hampshire Secondary schools with a brief interlude on medical grounds during which he also retrained to cover the Primary phase.
Leaving teaching in 2012 to pursue practical ambitions, he studied for a string of vocational qualifications before trading independently as an Electrician ahead of being invited to join the MRC as a part-time Building Manager towards the end of 2013. Whilst continuing to conduct business as a sole-trader away from the MRC, Philip studied for the necessary Health and Safety qualifications to enable him to take over the role of Building Facilities Manager full-time in January of 2015.
Since 2015, Philip has overseen the external refurbishment of the building, working closely with Jerry Draper and the external contractors to keep the project on course and ensure the building remains viable for the foreseeable future. In addition, he has worked toward agreeing a review of the electrical specification of the building, working closely with Martyn Poxon and Ray Smith to complete a total rewire and a doubling of the incoming capacity to accommodate future freezer provision.
Philip is a regular member of the Faculty of Medicine Health and Safety panel with Karen Walker-Bone and liaises regularly with Mark Pickett to ensure continued compliance with Health and Safety updates.
