He joined the Colonial Administration Service (CAS) in 1928, and had held positions as District Officer at Oya Territory, Nigeria, Colonial Secretary in the Bahamas, Secretary of Finance in Mandatory Palestine, and Secretary of the Governorial Conference in South Africa.
His service record was viewed as exceptional, and because of that, he was later announced as the new Governor and Commander-in-Chief for Sarawak by Lord Listowel, Minister of State for Colonial Affairs, to replace Charles Arden-Clarke, who was later posted as the Governor-General of Gold Coast.
