Craig Enderby's Profile

 I have lived and worked in Hull and East Riding my whole life. I am married and have three school aged children.

The success of our services is not just of professional significance, but of personal importance to me. I have worked in local health and care services since 1993 both in paid and voluntary capacity for organisations including Humberside, Hull and East Riding Councils; MIND; Mencap and Survivors Hull and East Riding where i held positions such as Counsellors' Representatives, Chair of Executive Committee  and Charity Trustee.

In 2005 I began working for the Trust in Clinical Development Unit delivering training courses across the Trust and to Partner Agencies. I also had the opportunity to support staff with their own development needs. Since 2011 I have worked as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist & EMDR (trauma) Therapist for both Hull and East Riding IAPT services.

I was elected as a Staff Governor and came to post in March 2017. I put myself forward for this role as the Trust, like many public organisations, are experiencing ongoing and constant changes. We as staff understand the need to work to business models and ideals. I felt, however, over the years the 'wellbeing and felt experience' of staff within Humber had not been reflected or valued in a pragmatic way within business process. This is something I wanted to highlight.

My aim as a Clinical Staff Governor is to represent all staff. The role is varied and enjoyable and includes some statutory requirements; such as attending meetings, commenting on policies & voting on various issues. We also visit staff teams, attend the staff awards and vote on the Employee of the month. I try to speak to as many staff as possible to gather your views; this allows me to then pass on your views at appropriate meeting and groups.

When I'm not at work my time revolves around a busy family and social life and my passion for cycling and football.
