Atia Williams

Human Resources Adviser


Atia Williams has been appointed HR Advisor from January 2014 for the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education.

She has worked in Human Resources within the Education sector in Local Authorities and directly with schools for over twenty years.  This has meant that she has been involved with supporting the implementation of the numerous changes that have taken place over this time both nationally and locally.  She has also been a school governor and Vice Chair for seven years and is appreciative of the very difficult job that school’s management entails. 

Atia is a post graduate and Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and also has the privilege of being a member of the Judiciary and sitting on Employment Tribunals as a lay member.

With this background she feels ideally suited to giving credible and professional advice and support to schools and is delighted to work for the SDBE.  She is passionate about education and its importance to help raise the aspirations and outcomes of our children and young people.
