Jeff Wright

Prior to joining the education sector Jeff spent 25 years in the Royal Navy, in the UK, at sea and overseas specialising in various areas of logistics law and operations, as well as a sideline in intelligence photography. Jeff focused on education and training towards the end of his career, developing a programme in service law for which he was formally commended and also lectured in Operational Logistics and Law of Armed Conflict at BRNC Dartmouth.

At Plymouth University Jeff worked in the Office of the Vice-Chancellor, briefing on external policy and writing policy papers on a diverse range of subjects including the potential impact of Brexit on the HE Sector.
