DFID | Head of Profession

Mark has worked for DFID (and before that, the UK’s ODA) since 1991. He graduated as a Civil Engineer in 1980, worked for consulting engineer firms in Zambia, the UAE and the UK primarily in the water sector. Following a Masters Degree in 1991 he has worked mostly on the UK’s country development programmes in India, Southern Africa, Nepal, Ethiopia, Afghanistan (twice) and Vietnam with occasional periods in HQ.
