Writing for Black History Month, our colleague Jeff Cox reflects on his time as a member of Anti-Slavery International and discusses the ongoing work to end modern slavery.
Jeff is a long-standing member of staff with the Insolvency Service, working out of the Official Receiver’s office in Reading.
Jeff Joined the service in 1984 as a clerical officer, with the intention of that being a stop gap job, whilst he continued to look other work.
However, he was attracted to the roles of Insolvency Examiner, being particularly drawn to the mix of a varied case load and investigation work. For many years he found his Higher Executive Officer role to be both a demanding and satisfying.
Jeff is currently in a Senior Executive Officer role of Deputy Official Receiver, managing the Reading office on behalf of the Official Receiver.
Outside of work his main form of relaxation is music - having picked up the guitar during the heady days of Punk Rock. His musical tastes have mellowed since then.
In our latest blog, commemorating Black History Month, our colleague Jeff reflects on his parents' journey to the UK and his own journey in the Civil Service.
