Naomi Richards
Skills Adviser, SMART SKILLS
What is your favourite thing about SMART SKILLS?

That it’s accessible to anyone over the age of 16 in Devon and the fact that businesses can upskill their staff without paying a penny!

What do you like most about working on the SMART SKILLS programme?

I love that our job isn’t just about the fully funded training we offer, it’s also about being a friendly face or voice on the end of a phone for anyone wanting advice about possible upskilling and career options.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

Spending time with my husband and two children, we enjoy winter walks and holidaying somewhere hot!! Also, love spa days relaxing with friends!

Interesting fact about yourself

I’m allergic to cats….yet I have two of them! 2 year old Raffi and our new addition, 8 week old kitten George!
