Two more years at LSE doing a Masters alongside working for the Higher Education Research Unit, producing a book for the National Economic Development Office on the Future Demand for Qualified Manpower in Great Britain. 


Short time as Manpower Planner in the Civil Service Department, then 8 years at Coventry Council also as a Manpower Planner.
