Nabil Dar - Parent Governor
NABIL DAR - PARENT GOVERNOR
Responsibilities: Finance & Staffing Committee
I joined the Governors at Oakleigh in 2020, and am also a parent at the school. I have deep roots in the local area, having grown up and gone to school locally.
After moving away to read Economics at the University of Cambridge, I returned to London and entered the world of work as a Management Consultant, specialising in the Strategy and Commercial Due Diligence space. After picking up some invaluable skills (and racking up more than a fair few 100 hour weeks!), I moved across to a Strategy role at Virgin Media where I acted as an adviser to the CEO and CFO, tackling a multitude of issues and leading multiple cross-functional projects to help drive the long-term vision of the business. I subsequently moved across to my current role where I head up the Strategic Planning function at GoCardless, a London-based FinTech, looking to lay the blueprint for the company's future as it looks to scale-up and expand internationally.
Away from crunching spreadsheets, I am an avid fan of all things sporting and tech. I also have a somewhat unhealthy obsession for quizzing and random trivia. As a parent to two boys with extra needs, I am passionate about giving our kids the best possible platform to thrive and hope to help the governors guide the school in continuing to provide this.
