Louise Lenton - Acas East Midlands Area Director

Louise Lenton Louise has been a Civil Servant for most of her working life. She started off in Land Registration before moving to DWP as a 16 to 24 Work Coach, then later Jobcentre Manager. This is where she developed a passion for developing the talent of our young people and supporting them into employment by ensuring they are fully prepared for the world of work.

Louise then moved to HMRC where she managed a large Specialist Tax Team responsible for Trusts and Inheritance Tax, during which time she set up a new training team to create and deliver a comprehensive induction and training package for new recruits. The chance came to move back into a public facing role and she joined Acas as a Senior Advisor and Individual Conciliator Manager. She believes the management skills she used in previous roles stood her in good stead for the duties she now carries out within Acas.

Louise is Deputy Chair of the Midlands Civil Service Diversity and Inclusion Network. She works across Government Departments to identify and challenge issues impacting diversity, inclusion and progression. Her network is working with Cabinet Office/Civil Service Diversity and Inclusion Strategy Group, contributing to the development of the new Civil Service Diversity and Inclusion strategy.
