Rose Rolle-Rowan – Organisational Development Consultant, Oxfordshire County Council
Rose Rolle-Rowan is an Organisational Development Consultant for Oxfordshire County Council. Rose is the organisational lead for one-to-one executive coaching. Her wider OD interests include coaching teams to improve performance, change process support, and building networks to encourage colleagues to make connections and enjoy learning from one another. She also leads on Apprenticeships and approaches to volunteer management for the Council.
After joining Oxfordshire’s HR team in 2010 to manage a variety of workforce initiatives, Rose developed an increasing interest in OD theory and practice, and the techniques that can help teams and individuals cope well with change. This interest was fuelled by completing a Postgraduate Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership in 2012. Rose moved into Oxfordshire’s OD team in 2014 and began to develop her skills as a practitioner, firstly via an OD development course, and then via training as an executive coach in 2016.
Prior to working for Oxfordshire, Rose worked in economic regeneration for London Borough of Newham, managing a large team of employment support workers in a service that was expanding rapidly, with the associated dynamics which kept the job interesting…! Rose has also worked for a Volunteer Centre in west London, and began her career in private sector recruitment.
Since 2011, Rose has been a Trustee for Aspire, leading on HR/OD matters. Aspire is an Oxfordshire charity that provides life-changing opportunities to people with a history of addiction, homelessness, offending and social exclusion.
