Di Sheridan – Industry Careers Consultant

Di Sheridan – relaxing on her day’s off!

Di has worked in the field of apprenticeships and traineeships since 1998. Her roles in the industry have included mentor, advisor, and senior consultant, as well as being the North West/Northern Coordinator. She first began working for NECA Education & Careers on a part time basis in 2014 as an Apprentice Mentor Advisor for the MAPs program. Di was approached by NECA Education & Careers to work with the MAPs program in its last 18 months. She was then offered her a current role in Group employment at NECA Education & Careers in 2015.

Di holds a number of qualifications that complement her experience in assisting apprentices and trainees. These include:

  • Certificate 4 in Work Health & Safety
  • Certificate 4 in Training & Assessment
  • Certificate 4 in Employment Services
  • Certificate 4 in Business

Outside of the office, Di loves to keep fit by walking anywhere from 8 to 15 kilometres per day. She is also an avid Harley Davidson motorcycle owner and rider. Whatever the weather, no matter how cold, Di and her husband will get away in the caravan for the weekend every 2 to 3 weeks, sometimes along with their family and friends. She has also supported and been involved in running the family building business for 10 years.

What Di loves about working for NECA Education & Careers is helping people see their dreams become a reality. She enjoys being a part of an apprentice or trainee’s journey from when they commence through to completion, and all the support and guidance she and her colleagues offer them throughout their apprenticeship or traineeship.

Di’s why is the contact with people and the uncertainty and challenges of what the day brings.

“NECA Education & Careers are a supportive and flexible workplace and I have brilliant work colleagues.” Di Sheridan
