About us

Who We Are

Supplytrain is an agile team that makes it easy for employers to offer junior jobs to young people.

We are passionate about social mobility.

We want young people, whatever their life circumstances, to get a fair crack at accessing good jobs and not be so reliant on connections, qualifications or previous experience.  

Our Mission

We aim to provide simple to use, innovative services that make a real difference to the chances young people have in getting on at work.

We want employers to recruit raw talent and train for skill. This means making it worthwhile. This is our mission.   

We Believe

We believe in learning through doing, in collaborating, listening to our customers and exploring new ideas.

We believe in challenging the status quo. Changing how things are done, by doing them differently. 

We believe in transforming lives and reshaping the future. 

We all have a story to tell…

Phil Golding - Managing Director

Phil oversees the day-to-day running of the business, manages the team and identifies new ways to support young people struggling to get a fair start into work. 

In his early 20s, Phil developed agoraphobia and was unable to hold down a steady job. This was until an understanding employer invested in him and supported him at work.

Phil is now on a mission to play forward this support and help others to fulfil their potential and overcome their challenges.  

Maggie Fowler - Founder

Maggie founded Supplytrain to help employers better understand the financial benefits of employing and training young people. She ia now a non-executive director, providing strategic advice and challenging the staff to keep to its purpose.

Starting work in the 70s, as the first female accounts trainee in an office full of men, Maggie has sometimes had to fight to be heard. But she’s learnt that work can build confidence and resilience and give you skills to cope with the challenges that life throws at you.

Now, Sarah utilises this experience to design careers support that helps and challenges young people to better identify the career that’s right for them and the steps to take to get there. 

Amanda Robertshaw - Apprenticeship Manager

Amanda runs our Flexi-Job Apprenticeship service – making it as easy as possible for employers to run great apprenticeship programmes and reduce skills gaps at work. 

Amanda has worked in Further Education for over 16 years, helping 100s of young people into work through training. She is passionate about using this experience at Supplytrain to make sure young people are matched to the right apprenticeship opportunity, so they gain the tools they need to start on the right foot and progress at work.
