Bank manager Jonathan Wales has taken up a new role helping voluntary sector organisations thrive.

Mr Wales (pictured), has been seconded from his job as branch manager of the Halifax at Cloth Hall Street in Huddersfield, to become full-time Business Connector for South Kirklees linking Third Sector bodies such as community groups and charities to people in business who can help them overcome issues relating to employment, education and enterprise.

Mr Wales, who will hold the post for 12 months, succeeds Mark Yarwood, of Lloyds Banking Group, who has completed his one-year secondment.

Mr Wales was appointed manager at Huddersfield branch three years ago after managing the bank’s branch at Markest Street in Halifax.

He is a former governor of a primary school in Mirfield.
