John Hoskinson OBE
I spent 35 years in the British Army, reaching the rank of Brigadier. I received an OBE for commanding the engineering effort in Kosovo in 1999, and as Executive Director of Human Resources, was responsible for the personnel issues of some 70,000 servicemen and women. I left the Army in 2005 and became Deputy and Acting COO at Liverpool University, before moving to the University of Northampton to become Pro Vice Chancellor (Strategic Planning & Resources).
I’d always harboured ambitions to work in the charitable sector so was delighted to join Milestones Trust in October 2012. I’m determined to make a positive contribution to the organisation and to the lives of everyone associated with it. My other charitable commitments include being a voluntary Director with Care and Support West and a Trustee of VODG.
