Personal history

As the son of a minister, Peredur had already lived in many different parts of Wales before he went to Glan Clwyd secondary school in St Asaph, including Pumsaint in Carmarthenshire, Moelfre in Ynys Môn, Lixwm in Flintshire. Peredur has a Masters Degree in Control Systems Engineering from the University of Sheffield, and now lives in Caerphilly.

Professional background

As a student in Sheffield, Peredur took a job in banking. After completing his degree, Peredur was fast-tracked into being a Bank Manager for Santander, and was able to move back to Wales to complete his training. Whilst with Santander, Peredur worked in branches across south Wales, including Newport, Monmouth, Caerphilly, Merthyr Tydfil, Blackwood, Cwmbran, Barry, Tonypandy, and Cardiff. After Santander, came Principality Building Society, where Peredur worked as a Business Development Manager for the residential mortgage arm of the business. After 13 years in the Financial sector, Peredur joined Christian Aid as Regional Coordinator for South Wales and Legacy Officer for Wales as a whole. During this time, he joined the Board of Directors for Displaced People in Action, a charity working to place refugees. His next step was to join Cytûn: Churches together in Wales, where he worked with the many faith groups across Wales.
