Meet The Team

ANDREA SPEAK - Managing Director
My mother always said I was a bossy child, so it is perhaps not surprising I ended up owning my own Company. In reality though, Just Training (East Midlands) Limited, was born out of the frustration of working within endless reams of funding bureaucracy where it was more important to fill in forms all day, than deliver any kind of quality training or even understand what the employer required.

I have a passion for "doing things right" and "going the extra mile" which has given us an enviable position of approximately 91% repeat business rate year on year, and a pattern of continuous growth and development into new areas. Along with this each year we seem to gain a significant number of businesses placing their training with ourselves based on our reputation, audit reports and value for money training programmes.

I hold a wide range of qualifications in Management, Leadership, Teaching and Training, Assessing, Internal Quality Assurance, Customer Service, First Aid and much more.

Working for yourself is hard, but also very rewarding. If you are not prepared to put in a 110% you should not be a business owner !

HANNAH MOORE - Employment Engagement Manager
Hannah joined us in 2016 as our sales co-ordinator, and quickly became embedded into the organisation due to her enthusiasm for bringing on board new businesses and clients across the range of our training services. Hannah is a delight to work with and most of our customers and clients will be, or become, extremely familiar with her helpful nature and the effort she goes to to try and meet employer needs.

ALISON BLACK - Administration Manager
Alison joined us in March 2021 initially to take on board the overflow of day to day administration, but quickly became a pair of hands we just couldn't do without across many other areas of our needs, and has proven to be a lynch pin of our Admin functions.
