Congratulations to former pupil, Robbie Gibbons (class of 2000), who today was named in the Timewise Power 50 awards list for 2020. The Timewise Power 50 awards are the UK’s only celebration of people and organisations who make a success of flexible working.
Having worked part-time for five years now I continue to be impressed and enthused by what can be achieved when smart companies trust and support their people to work flexibly at senior levels.Robbie Gibbons
Robbie’s entry on the Timewise website reads:
Robbie is the Global Director of Business Operations for Accenture Technology Delivery. He has worked part-time since 2015, and was promoted on this basis in 2018. In his current role, he leads an international team of nearly 50 professionals across five continents to drive strategic programmes, enhance portfolio performance, and oversee the governance of Accenture Technology’s client activities. Robbie initiated a part-time working pattern so he could share the responsibility with his wife of bringing up two daughters while balancing career goals. He is an advocate for using technology to minimise travel, and acts as a role model for others looking to achieve flexible working – including supporting members of his own team to work part-time.
