Darcey Gillie

Darcey Gillie‘s career can best be described as ‘portfolio’ and is based on the planned happenstance career management model. She is former international PGR with postdoc experience and also fully qualified secondary teacher who has trained academic staff in teaching and elearning (as well as other aspects of academic practice). She has also held odd jobs ranging from butcher to baker to bookseller (with a bit of cheesemonger-ing on the side in between research contracts). She became a careers consultant because it allowed herto combine all her favourite parts of different jobs into one occupation – working in an HE environment, supporting the development of students and colleagues, teaching, research, being enterprising and creative.
