SOCIO-ECONOMIST FOR ST HELENA

 

 Arriving to the Island on 22 September 2013 was Socio-Economist, Thomas Holvey.

 

Based in the Project Management Unit at the Castle, Thomas has been contracted by St Helena Government for two years with the primary aim to help improve the decision making around project management. To do this Thomas will be providing socio-economic appraisal for separate projects in support of the Islandís Capital Spend Programme. This will be extended to appraisal and analysis of other tasks and strategies.

 

The role of Socio-Economist is a new one for St Helena and Thomas will be working on various projects within the Capital Programme as well as other Government policies that will have social or economic impacts on the Island.

 

Thomas commented on his new role:

ďIím very excited by the new role at a very important time for the Island. Moving to St Helena is something Iíve wanted to do for some time and Iím delighted to be able to fulfill this ambition whilst hopefully being able to contribute to Island life in a positive manner. St Helena has lived up to all my expectations so far, in terms of the beauty of the Island and the warmth of the local people.Ē

 

Prior to taking up his role on St Helena, Thomas worked as the Economic Policy Manager for Leeds City Council where he led on economic strategy and information for the City, and also delivered major projects such as Superfast Broadband. Thomas has also worked for the UK Government and other Councils in social and economic policy roles. He was also a local Councillor in York for 8 years.

 

Thomas is originally from Lincoln and moved to York 12 years ago before moving to St Helena. He is a keen cricketer and sports fan as well as being interested in political issues. Thomasí partner, Hannah, a nurse, will be arriving in 5 weeks.
