Gerri is listed as a guest speaker for one of our discussions but she does not work at Cumberland Lodge. We cannot share her contact details and it is not always possible for us to pass on contact enquiries to past speakers.

Gerri Clement joined the Cabinet Office in 2018 and led the cross-government resourcing hub during preparations for No Deal Brexit. She is now responsible for Performance, Planning and Risk in Civil Service HR. She describes herself as a ‘tempered radical’, and focuses on change programmes with a strong people focus.

Gerri is not a career civil servant, and her early career in the private sector focused on finance and recruitment. During a career break she served for five years as a school governor, leading on developing the school curriculum. Since joining the Civil Service in 2008 she has worked in major transformation programmes or strategy roles in the Ministry of Justice, the Foreign Office and Defra.

She is an ardent advocate for mentoring, and in December 2018 won the inaugural UK Universities Best Mentor award. She co-founded the Cross Government Social Mobility Network in 2016, and is a Trustee for a children’s charity (Go Beyond) providing holiday opportunities for under privileged children. She is passionate about cricket and her lifelong ambition is to watch a test match in every venue in the world.
