Performance Manager

Name: Fabienne Peraudeau

Job title: Performance Manager

Age: 30

Nation of birth: France

Qualifications: French Master’s degree in Building Engineering, MSc Environmental Engineering

Why did you move to Bradford? I came to the UK in 2009 to complete a master’s degree in Environmental Engineering in Newcastle, as a way to improve my English and supplement my French degree in Building Engineering. After having lived in Paris for 2 years, I instantly fell in love with Newcastle, the English way of life and… a Yorkshireman.

Upon completion of my degree, we moved to Oxford where my boyfriend (now husband) was about to start his doctorate.

Unfortunately I could not find a suitable job in my field so started applying for admin positions. This is when I joined the NHS family and started working at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre.

After three years in Oxford, in 2013, we decided to move to West Yorkshire closer to my husband’s family and friends. I secured a job at the Trust as a data officer and haven’t left since!

How long have you worked at BTHFT for? I have worked at the Trust for five and-a-half years.

What do you do? After moving post several times between the Division of Medicine and Performance, I am now back in Performance as a Performance Manager.

My role involves supporting the operational teams to monitor and, when required, improve their performance against defined targets, to ensure that the Trust provides the best care to patients at all times.

What do you like about working in Bradford? Working for Bradford Teaching Hospitals very much feels like being part of one big family. People all know each other and are always very supportive. This may be due to the relatively small size of the Trust but it’s also thanks to the warmth of the people I have been lucky to work with over the years.

What is different about healthcare in Bradford?

Working for the NHS in Bradford is an exciting challenge. The Trust needs to constantly adapt to new ways of working to improve efficiency and save costs while meeting the needs of the population we serve. It’s a never-ending improvement cycle which I feel very proud to be a part of.

What do you plan to do in the future?

I love living in Yorkshire so I don’t plan on going anywhere else! I am very thankful for the opportunities that I have been given at the Trust over the years so I definitely plan on staying here for a while.

I’m very much looking forward to the new challenges that will come my way over the next few years.
