The Solveway team

Keith Swain Managing Director

Solveway has become a successful Apprenticeship provider delivering high quality training throughout the UK. Largely this is testament to its dedicated staff and the initial vison of the company. I started Solveway to help local businesses develop the young talent we have throughout the UK.

With the support and dedication of the Solveway team we help around 100 candidates and business every year to achieve their employment and education goals. We look forward to working with you!

Jalna McGilly Director

Being a mum myself, I am proud to work in an industry that gives young people an alternative option to university or unemployment. In an Apprenticeship, a young person is given the opportunity to start their working career with qualifications without any debt.

To think that I can even play a small part in this inspires me. The 21st century equivalent is now in force and going strong. The difference now is that young people do not only get the work experience, they get an education and qualifications too.

Jim Tulloch Operations Manager

I am responsible for finances, planning, management reporting and administration. Before joining Solveway I worked for over 30 years as an IT manager for a pharmaceutical company. Outside work I enjoy wildlife photography, running, bee-keeping and gardening.

I’m responsible for the recruitment of our apprentices and making sure I find the best possible candidate for the companies we work with.
