Name: Fabienne Peraudeau
Job title: Performance Manager
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.
