Jo has been at HETA for 10 years and until recently was working as the Higher Nationals Curriculum Manager at HETA developing the HN programme ensuring learners develop their skills to meet the demands of industry.

In January 2015 Jo was promoted to Centre Manager for our Scunthorpe site and most recently Centre Manager for our Hull Centre. Jo is responsible  for the co-ordination of the training plans the day to day running of a busy Training Centre, ensuring that HETA continues to provide the quality service and training requirements that industry have benefited from and continue to strive upon.

Having had a varied and interesting career starting work as an accounts assistant for a financial institutions Jo decided upon working for Unilever Birds Eye Walls as a labour coordinator at the Hull site. She found an interest in business operations which encouraged her to study for a BA Business (HONS) in 2002 with the University of Lincoln, whilst applying these skills through employment within the organisation.

Unilever had strong links with HETA developing engineering training for their engineering maintenance teams. Thus leading to Jo being offered the role as a business tutor within HETA in 2004.
