About the Trainer:

Jim McNeill’s career history is both diverse and impressive. He puts it down to hard work and determination but agrees it may also be that he’s just been around a fair while now. Here’s the abbreviated version.

He realised quite early on that working in blast furnaces and down mines was probably not for him so left to go walking. When he eventually came back he went to college and qualified in Hotel and Catering Management after which he set up a number of catering initiatives involving the recruitment and training of staff with mental health issues and learning difficulties. 

From there it was a short leap into Social Services where he worked with adults with learning difficulties quickly moving into a senior management role.
