Kerry Lockyer


Kerry is an accomplished and highly credible Learning and Development professional, with over 20 years’ experience within both Retail and Merchant sectors. During this time Kerry has held a variety of senior Learning and Development roles across the Travis Perkins Group and Safeway and is able to demonstrate significant performance improvements in each of those roles, most notably in sales and margin but also around other key people metrics such as engagement, attrition and turnover. Building capability at the same time as adding value to the bottom line is what drives Kerry!

She has a degree in Food Marketing and discovered her passion for Learning and Development when she joined Safeway on a graduate scheme in 1998. After a nine month placement in store, running a variety of departments and acting as Duty Manager for a store with over one hundred colleagues, she then moved onto her next placement in the Commercial Team, as an Assistant Buyer. It wasn’t until the final placement though, in the Retail Training Team, that she had that “Eureka moment” and realised her ideal role and her future career, would somehow involve developing others.


It was following this “Eureka moment” at Safeway, that Kerry begun further professional study through the CIPD, which has continued throughout her career, most recently gaining her CIPD Advanced Level 7 Certificate in HR.
