The Hurst Staff
Dan Pavitt - Administrator and Caretaker
Dan Pavitt worked for very large company in the City of London for a very long time. He waded through the quagmire of Marine and Aviation insurance and emerged coughing and spluttering, almost physically choked by the mediocrity of it all in 1998. Unexpectedly alive again, he spent three happy years working at Barnet College in North London, and became PA to the Principal.
Having learnt how to change jobs he went a step further in 2001, re-locating for the first time in his life - to South Shropshire. For two years he brought IT into the Community at Ludlow College before Arvon made a new writing house on his doorstep. As administrator at The Hurst, he persuades creative and artistic people to do their paperwork - a task he likens to herding cats.
Dan is fit in the old fashioned sense of the word, and can often be seen pounding the footpaths above the centre at 5am.
