Paul Willis joins Develop’s Estates & FM team

Join us in giving a warm welcome to Paul Willis, who has recently joined Develop as the Operational Training Manager for our Estates and Facilities Management team. 

Paul brings with him a wealth of expertise in electrical systems and training. His journey began as an electrical maintenance engineer apprentice, laying the groundwork for a stellar career in the electrical field. After his apprenticeship, he transitioned to Hoover as a Technical Consultant. 

Next, Paul took a bold step and ventured into self-employment, launching his own electrical contracting business. This was a significant change, but Paul thrived, finding immense satisfaction in his entrepreneurial endeavours. 

After several successful years running his business, Paul sought a new challenge and entered the world of education. He joined a local college’s Engineering and Electrical division, where he discovered a passion for teaching. His impact grew as he became the curriculum manager, using his industry insights to shape the department’s direction. 

Now at Develop, Paul is ready to embark on his next adventure. He will be collaborating with the wider Operations team to ensure all delegates have an exceptional experience, whilst also overseeing the Estates and Facilities division and ensuring that all our training remains current, relevant, and compliant. 

One of Paul’s career highlights came in 2014 when he was part of the management team that earned an OFSTED Outstanding rating; a remarkable achievement especially as it was one of the first private colleges to receive this honour. 

Outside of work, Paul loves spending time with his family and his beloved border collie. He’s also a passionate biker and can often be spotted on his prized sports motorbike. 

We’re thrilled to have Paul on board. Welcome to the team, Paul!
