Meet the Team
This is our team, a lot of smiling happy people who work hard to empower the people who need it.
Adele started the business nearly 17 years ago, and takes a hands on approach to running it. While taking responsibility for tenders and contracts, as well as identifying suitable courses as the requirements for employment evolve, she also works closely with learners and job seekers, and is particularly proud of the team she’s built up t support them.
Away from the office, Adele keeps active with a spot of tap dancing, playing netball for a local team, and weekends away in the campervan with her family.
Marketing Administrator & Tutor
Beth joined Springboard in 2016, and her enthusiastic approach to supporting learners has seen her take on a range of roles in the business – from teaching through to managing our FaceBook profile.
Outside of work, Beth has the call of the road, and enjoys caravan trips across Europe with her family whenever possible. Failing that she can be found taking her faithful hound on a jog.
Tutor & Careers Advisor
Cath joined the team back in 2012 and has a very wide range of knowledge and experience that see’s her manage Work Clubs as well as delivers Basic IT training and Cookery from Scratch classes.
Cath’s wide ranging tutorial skills are reflected in her free time, which is spent variously taking a quiet hour out for lunch at home with her dogs and indulging her hidden talents as a vintage motorcycle rider!
Cookery Course Assistant
Helen spends much of her working day with clients, helping them with their CV’s and looking for appropriate work opportunities. Sometimes, that can also mean identifying skills development through training.
After a typically hectic working week, Helen spends weekends away supporting her daughter who events horses, or else relaxing at home with a good book and a glass of wine.
Lynne joined Springboard in 2019. Supporting clients who are looking to develop new skills and get back into work, Lynne enjoys the diversity of people that she meets and tutors, and finds great job satisfaction when someone gets the job they wanted.
Away from work, Lynne enjoys walking her dog and socialising with friends and family. Just don’t tell anyone she’s a closet Love Island fan.
Ruth runs an ever growing range of cookery courses for Springboard, encouraging participants to save money and eat more healthily by spending 10 minutes in the kitchen. With over 25 years teaching experience behind her, Ruth still spends time online researching new recipe ideas to share with learners.
Away from work, Ruth spends time cycling, swimming and at the gym. An outdoor enthusiast, she’s even been known to pitch her tent in her own back garden during the summer!
