Along with our amazing staff, we have a great group of volunteers & student placements who come to site & help with our work.
If you would like to know more about these opportunities, please get in touch.
Ian – Operations Manager
Ian is one of the original team who set up NEET in 2006. Ian spends his time dealing with the day-to-day running of the site… it’s not uncommon to spend forever trying to track him down as he is always in 500 places at once!
Caitlin – Administrator
Since starting in December, Cait has loved meeting all the team and getting to grips with all the office duties. From ordering uniform to creating bingo cards… she loves that no 2 days are ever the same!
Suzanne – Business Manager
Suzanne is our business manager, helping to set NEET up in 2006. When she isn’t busy in the office dealing with the ‘behind the scenes’ working of the business, you will find Suze catching up with the team on site.
Richard – Chef Tutor
Richard is our Chef Tutor, creating the most amazing recipes with the team using our Fareshare produce. He loves to cook outdoors and helps us all to keep healthy using vegetables grown on site.
James – Specialist Support Worker
James has been supporting us with the rover role. He has recently been working with the team, with all sorts from site maintenance, to plant sales, and even making a go kart! James is a cheeky chappy with a heart of gold, and we are very lucky to have him with us.
Pete – Specialist Support Worker
Pete usually spends his time in the woodwork shop, helping the team build planters and birdboxes. However, Pete also leads our music group and the site is often serenaded with the sound of ‘baby shark’ on the saxophone.
Jackie – Specialist Support Worker
Jackie is our social butterfly, keeping us all smiling and upbeat. She will turn her hand to anything, so if you don’t find her in the potting shed sorting out all the plants for the season, she is sure to be cooking up something cheese related in the kitchen!
Karl – Specialist Support Worker
Karl has been with NEET for about 5 years now, and he is loved by all the team. His fun, outgoing personality is infectious and he puts a smile on everyone’s faces. Although you will usually find him in woodwork or doing site maintenance, he also has a great time creating crafts with the team.
Holly – Specialist Support Worker
Holly started with NEET at the beginning of this year, and she is already a firm favourite amongst the team. Her previous experience means that she has been able to bring fresh and new ideas & activities to NEET. From making bee bombs to painting tyres, we can’t wait to see what’s next!
Dan – Specialist Support Worker
Joining in December, Dan is one of the newest members of staff. He has fitted in perfectly and we don’t know what we would do without him. When working with the team, they create recipes to make your mouth water.
Rory – Specialist Support Worker
You will often find Rory in the woodwork area, helping the team to build everything from small planters to garden benches. His smiling, fun personality keeps everybody laughing all day and he has gained, not only trust, but a firm friendship with a lot of the team.
