Operations manager

“I started my career within the industry without any knowledge but a great deal of passion and a will to succeed and to be part of the build of a good strong training company over 10 years ago. Working as a high-level recruitment consultant and Call centre sales manager in my previous roles, I had a good knowledge of how to build a strong client base and had always managed accounts at a high level and this is where I started. After being successful in the build of one training company which predominantly worked within the funding training area, I then went onto build a second alongside the owner, which was a commercial training provider, when I become a director of the business. Working with many awarding bodies and different accreditations has supported me in building my knowledge over the years and continues to do so on a daily basis.

I strongly believe in companies receiving good quality training at affordable prices but also having a supportive, knowledgeable person to help them along at the end of the phone”

Training Manager

“I have worked in the Training Industry for more than ten years now. It was actually my very first job after leaving school – working as an apprentice in a small training business. After learning new skills over the years, I decided I needed something new and moved on to a different company! My biggest challenge to date was being involved with setting up a new business from the very start – Connect Training Services Limited! I love the company and the business ethics, which is that we believe every single person deserves quality training at a fair cost! We are growing at an amazing pace and every day brings something new – we are all certainly very proud!”

Head of Training Delivery

“After working in the Construction industry for a number of years I moved in to training in 2000.

Throughout my career as a Trainer, I have liaised with industry bodies such as CITB, ECITB, IOSH and NEBOSH, as well as the HSE. I strongly believe training should be inclusive and enjoyable for all by use of various different types of learning techniques to engage everybody.

I joined connect in December 2021 to be part of this growing company and to give my own input to help achieve the goals set. As a forward-thinking business with a proactive approach to learners and client engagement I find it a very enjoyable company to work for”

Training Co-Ordinator

“I have worked in outsource Construction and Engineering Training Companies for over 10 years, working with many awarding bodies such as CITB, ECITB, Highfields, NPORS, NOCN and many more. I am passionate about good customer service and account management, and enjoy supporting clients to make sure they achieve the best training solutions at a competitive price. I have recently joined Connect Training Services after previously working with the team within a previous training company and am excited to be a part of the team”

Trainer / Assessor

“After working in the warehousing industry for 10 years doing various roles, from being an operator to shift supervisor, I took a leap into becoming a full-time RTITB Forklift instructor and I have been doing this for the last four years.

I am very passionate about making sure training is enjoyable and that all trainees are comfortable, even after they have passed the course!

I joined Connect in April 2023 after hearing about their ambitions to take the company to the next level and I wanted to be a part of that journey. We are growing at an amazing pace and we can’t wait to see where it goes!”

Trainer / Assessor

“Throughout my time as an Instructor, I have worked with many awarding bodies such as IPAF, RTITB, NPORS & FAA.

My aim is to make my training courses not only educational, but also interesting and engaging, as I believe people learn more when they are enjoying themselves!

I joined Connect Training in February 2024. It’s great to play such a vital role in a growing business that has already established an incredible reputation with their clients in just three years! I’m surrounded by hard working and experienced people and I can’t wait to see where we are in another three years!”
