Cultural heritage: Punjabi Sikh
Role: OD and Inclusion Manager
“Being a proud sikh is fundamental to who i am and i feel privileged to be working at a trust that embraces my culture”
Born and raised in Bradford, West Yorkshire Jeeves has always celebrated his Punjabi heritage within the wider context of growing up in Britain. Being Sikh is a big part of practicing his culture. It is integral to who he is.
Here he wears the Kurta Pajama, a traditional South Asian outfit that is usually made from cotton or silk. It dates back to the Ottoman Empire.
For Jeeves, working for the NHS means working with colleagues toward a common goal, looking after patients and serving the community. In his role as OD and Inclusion Manager, Jeeves loves meeting colleagues and patients at the Trust who are at the core of everything we do.
Bringing his true self to work is important to Jeeves and he feels he can do that at ROH which he describes as a “warm, welcoming and inclusive place to work.”
