Welcome to SSG Manchester!
Hi there, my name is Amber and I’ve been working with young people for around 10 years now!
I started as an apprentice myself at the age of 18, university just wasn’t for me and I didn’t get the advice and guidance I needed to make important career decisions in college. Becoming an apprentice made me realise how valuable young people are to any workforce. As a result, I have committed my time to helping young people from across all different backgrounds reach their potential and identify their unique skills, strengths and ideal career pathways!
When I’m not working, I enjoy reading, crafting and walking our dog Sasha.
