James Laley

Name: James Laley


What do you do at the university?

I am part of the Employability team in Sheffield Business School. I engage students in co-curricular activity and also help level 5’s gain a placement.


What have you worked on within Signal?

I am new to Signal but have already identified many areas I would like to get involved with. Being a champion for SBS, putting on mini events for certain national days, establishing links with other LGBT+ charities/organisations and the local community & helping SHU get onto the Stonewall workplace equality index top 100 employers.


How has being a member of Signal benefited you?

Being part of Signal I’m sure will help me engage with the LGBT+ community in a greater way and deliver key actions and change for the future.


Other hobbies

I am involved in amateur dramatics and part of a group in Sheffield. I perform in a Pantomime every year which I have done for the past 9 years now.
