David Maycock

Employee Relations Consultant

David Maycock

David is an HR professional with considerable experience in both equality and diversity issues and education HR as well as more generalist HR experience in both the learning and development and employee relations fields.

Before joining South East Employers, David worked for the Local Government Employers (LGE) for 5½ years, firstly with the Sixth Form Colleges’ Forum (SFCF) as an Employment Issues Adviser and more recently for the National Employers’ Organisation for School Teachers (NEOST) as a Negotiating Officer.  As such, David has gained considerable experience in advising local authorities and Sixth Form Colleges on pay and conditions of service issues as they relate to schoolteachers and both teaching and support staff in Sixth Form Colleges.

In addition, David has experience of advising and training on many aspects of best HR practice as it relates to employers, including, for example, on sickness absence management; discipline, capability and grievance procedures; equality discrimination legislation and redundancy issues.

In the field of negotiations, David has experience of negotiating improvements in pay and national terms and conditions of employment for both teaching and support staff in Sixth Form Colleges in conjunction with the relevant trade unions, and also for negotiating changes to the terms and conditions Handbooks for staff in Sixth Form Colleges.

He was involved, as a member of NEOST, in Social Partnership (Workforce Agreement Monitoring Group) arrangements, set up under the previous Government, to monitor and implement the National Agreement 2003, which had the dual functions of tackling workload and raising standards in schools in England and Wales. This Social Partnership was a collaboration between the Government, Employers’ Organisations and the teacher trade unions, and as such agreed consensus positions on recommendations and evidence to the School Teachers’ Review Body (following remits from the Secretary of State for Education) in respect of changes to the legislation governing school teachers’ pay and conditions of employment.
