Fergus Beesley – Executive Director

Fergus has been the Executive Director at Groundwork South Yorkshire for over 10 years, since February 2004. He is responsible for providing the strategic leadership for the trust and oversees all contracts delivered by Groundwork South Yorkshire.

Having worked in senior management roles in Sheffield’s third sector for 25 years, Fergus has the experience needed to secure major contracts and partnerships for the charity.

Highlight of the role:  “The NCS and Talent Match programmes provide a great deal of personal satisfaction as they provide the strongest and  very genuine evidence, that young people have an amazing capacity to achieve great things and use  their talents positively, with just a little encouragement from their coaches and other supporters”.

Why Groundwork South Yorkshire is great: “I like the challenge it presents virtually every day and the fact that we focus on creating  jobs and other opportunities for the people we seek to support in South Yorkshire”.
