Meet Simon Fitzgerald

Hi, my name is Simon Fitzgerald, I have worked across the Skills and Employability sector for over 20 years holding a number of Senior Management positions. More recently I have led a funding and tendering department which secured over £45m of public funds in the last 5 years across multiple funding strands including government priorities of Skills Bootcamps, Pre-Apprenticeships and Community Renewal Funding. I join Pathway as Chief Funding and Partnerships Officer to continue our growth aspirations and focus on new initiatives and adopt a truly national skills focus.

I am passionate about making sure we work collaboratively with funders, partners, sharing ideas, best practice and opportunities and hold extensive stakeholder management skills.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and friends and adopting a ‘can do’ approach in all things I undertake.
