Tom Shaw – Chair of Trustees
Coming from a large family background, and being active with clubs and corporations in a voluntary role, my key skill areas are organisation, implementation, assessment and dispute & complaint resolution.
After attaining all my GCSEs at a higher level in the summer of 1993, I went on to study A-levels at High Pavement Sixth Form College gaining “average” grades in Maths, Physics and Design & Technology.
I worked for Royal Mail from 1995 until 2004 in varying roles from humble postman on the street to PHG (postman – higher grade, working internally with high value and special items). I left employment in late 2004 to care for our third eldest child who has a very complex autoimmune disease. Without the care, support and expertise I was able to give him (and continue to) it is likely that he wouldn’t be with us now.
As well as being on the Trust board as a parent, I work closely with Nottingham City Homes as a volunteer sitting on their “Tenant & Leaseholder Complaints Panel” currently being the vice chair, a position I have been in for 18 months now.
