Cath Dutton

Careers Hub Manager, Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership

Cath joined the WELL Board as a representative of Cumbria LEP which provides a strategic lead on all activities contributing to the county’s economic growth. 

Cath has lived and worked in Cumbria for over 30 years, moving here from Lancashire after completing an OND and HND in hospitality management. Throughout her career she has always been particularly interested in skills development, and I’ve spent the last 25 years in skills and HR development roles within hospitality, Cumbria Tourism and, most recently, her  own business, People Junction.

She is passionate about inspiring young people to achieve their very best and helping them to see all the wonderful opportunities available to them in Cumbria and beyond and is thrilled to be representing Cumbria LEP on the WELL Board.   In June 2021, she was privileged to be awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2021 for her commitment to Education and Training.
