Voting is now open for the techUK Justice and Emergency Services Management Committee (JESMC)! Your organisation has until 13:00 GMT on the 14th December to cast your vote – vote here!

Only 20 candidates will make it onto the committee for the 2024/2026, so please do consider who you want to see leading the way in the Justice/Blue Light community!

Why should you consider Anthony and Methods?


“As Business Development Director at Methods (Digital Transformation leader within Justice and Emergency Services), and a key TechUK supporter, I’ve been working to help drive Digital Transformation and Procurements across the public sector.

Since joining Methods in 2016 I have been the lead for Criminal Justice and Policing having worked across the sector on both client and supplier sides for over 17 years. That experience has been taken into my Sales and Business Development activities, working closely with MOJ, HMCTS, Home Office, and Policing at all levels, as well as wider Central Government departments. This has helped me to contribute as an active and committed member of the JESMC during this current term, consistently contributing and providing insight and thought leadership wherever possible.

Having previously served two terms as part of the Central Government Council, I have also been an active member of the Digital Justice Working Group since 2020, currently serving as Interim Chair. Through both the JESMC and the DJWG I have built up good working relationships within the TechUK community which have helped to support the committee’s progress.”


What can Anthony bring to the Committee?


“Having worked across the Criminal Justice Sector for 17 years, I’ve proven that I’m able to bring significant experience and thought leadership to the management committee, having served for the last two years. I’ve been an active member throughout my time and will continue to provide that commitment.

Currently Methods is delivering major services across MOJ, HMCTS, Home Office, and Policing. The majority of these services are wide-ranging and varied, often driving innovation, and provides insight into different approaches and challenges that I share with the committee.

These services and interactions across both the wider agencies, Policing and the Crime Programme at HMCTS, also give me the ability to obtain extensive input from the teams to highlight good practices and those to improve on, as well as providing access to key stakeholders that can add value.

In addition to the ability to provide thought leadership from a Justice perspective, I’m involved in other areas of the Public Sector and am well positioned to highlight areas that have been successful elsewhere and could be re-used and/or can become more joined up.

Having been part of Methods as we’ve progressed from SME status, I can also offer a viewpoint from both perspectives as well as understanding how to support SMEs wherever possible. With my role on the Digital Justice Working Group, I’m able to provide a link to and from both, aiding consistency and a joined up approach that provides most benefit to the wider membership as well as our key stakeholders in Justice and Emergency Services.”
