Richard Palmer

Richard Palmer, Vocations Advisor

I spent my whole career in training, development and coaching and have always been drawn to helping others to recognise, develop and discover ways to use their gifts and talents.

I do believe that we are all blessed with God-given gifts. But these don’t always come gift-wrapped with an explanatory label.

Sometimes, therefore, we need to explore them. And having a sounding board during this process is helpful

I was also privileged to become a Spiritual Accompanier 5 years ago, walking beside others in their spiritual journey.

Bringing together both our journey and our unique gifts assists us to discern the potential directions in which our calling and vocation may lead us.

That is my understanding of the Vocations Advisor’s role and why I find it so rewarding to offer my time to this.
