Vanessa Currie

Head of People, Learning and Development

As Head of People, Learning and Development I lead on the delivery of our people management strategies which support both Millennium Point’s business aims and objectives and Millennium Point Trust’s charitable objectives.

I am a chartered member of the CIPD, with a Master of Science in Human Resource Development and I have over 30 years’ HR experience, including roles at Asda Stores Limited, West Mercia Constabulary and Mettis Aerospace. I have also spent time working as a freelance HR consultant providing advice and insights to a wide range of clients and organisations. My key areas of interest include linking the strategic aims of Millennium Point to the People agenda and ensuring all team members are equipped to realise their full potential.

I also manage the charitable arm of our organisation Millennium Point Trust. Our vision is to be recognised as a leader in the promotion of education and careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). I am responsible for both our grants and scholarship programmes, and these programmes are vital components in supporting our charitable aims of improving STEM education and promoting STEM as a career choice in the West Midlands. There are many exciting opportunities for young people in STEM in the West Midlands and I am delighted that the work that I do, can help young people realise their full potential.
