I was born in Jersey and educated at De La Salle. I studied law at Kingston University, attended Bar School in London after that, qualifying as a barrister and then returned to Jersey and qualified as a local lawyer in 1997. I have only ever worked at one firm, Collas Crill, and will have been there for 27 years this October. I have been a partner of the firm since 2000. My specialism is property law, and in particular commercial property and I am the current chair of the Law Society Conveyancing Sub- Committee.
I live in St. Clement with my wife, Lisa and three children and Boris the dog. My interests are going to the gym, yoga, and golf and I am a long-suffering fan of the football team, Plymouth Argyle.
What I perhaps hadn’t appreciated when I first joined the Committee at Family Nursing & Home Care was the scope of services it offers throughout the whole of everyone’s lives and how so many Islanders benefit from those services. When I first joined the Committee I shadowed certain teams to get a feel for what they do and I was struck by the diversity of care offered.
I also loved both the care shown and the total professionalism of every single staff member I worked with. They loved what they were doing.
I think that the events of 2020 have brought about the long-overdue recognition of nursing in general and the front line bravery of the FNHC team, as well as the support provided by the administrative teams, has been very impressive
Peter Wright joined the FNHC Committee in mid 2018.
Pete is an experienced finance and operations professional with over 25 years’ experience within the Private and Public Sector. He holds significant managerial and commercial experience and a proven track record within Finance, Audit, Risk and Compliance.
He relocated to Jersey in 2002 and has since held a number of senior operational and finance positions across a variety of industries. Positions have included over eight years and Finance Director of an International Money Service Business, helping to guide them through a period of rapid expansion and global diversification.
Subsequently, he was Chief Financial Officer of a Jersey based Trust Company.
He is a member and fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (FCCA) with over twelve years post qualification experience.
He also holds the Diploma in Company Direction with the Institute of Directors.
My background is in nursing and I trained locally, qualifying in 1996. I worked as a Staff Nurse at the General Hospital then spent several years at Clarkson House. My last nursing post was with FNHC where I worked as a Staff Nurse and Junior Sister in the west of the Island.
I left nursing to have my second child in 2009, returning to work in 2011 as a lecturer in Health and Social Care at Highlands College. After several years teaching, I left the College to take up a position as event organiser for Vibert Marquees.
My partner is a DJ and Authorised Civil Celebrant and we also run an events business where my focus is on family entertainment and activities.
I have 2 children, a 17-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son.
Over the last few years, I have become a member of the Youth Arts Advisory Committee and represented staff at Highlands as an elected member of the Board of Governors.
I was also a member of Highlands Wellbeing Strategy Group and the Quality Committee with a supplementary role as Lead Quality Assurer for Level 2 courses.
These roles have given me knowledge and experience of the important work committees do to support organisations.
When I was asked to join the FNHC committee I felt it was an opportunity to again be part of a fantastic organisation which I hold in upmost regard.
I hope my background working in the sector will enable me to offer a viewpoint from the 'shop floor' perspective and that my experience in education can contribute to the needs of an ever-changing sector. I value family above everything else and believe all individuals have a right to be valued and supported in the workplace to achieve a good home life balance and feel that their needs are met by employers.
