Julie Calvert

Business Development Manager

 

 

Julie is responsible for developing and managing new apprenticeship training opportunities here at Tiro. She forges strong partnerships with employers throughout the East of England.                        

Julie has over 30 years commercial experience in a FTSE 100 company. In senior sales and account management roles, she was responsible for the UK market, servicing a variety of industry sectors including electronics, automotive, glass, ceramics, and chemicals. 

Having seen how effective they can be first-hand, Julie is a keen advocate of apprenticeships. Her own daughter began her career with a 4-year apprenticeship programme at age 16. 8 years on she is still with the same employer, and achieved a BA Honours Degree and a National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) Regional Award, for which she was highly commended. 

Julie is a keen runner and has raised money for local charities by completing several marathons and an ultra-marathon. In her spare time she loves spending time with family, friends and tending her garden.
