Meet one of our new team members

Boots Hero

Name Andrew Millar

Job Connections North Keyworker

Base Ballymena

How long have you worked for Start 360? Just over a month now

Interests Football, pizza, tattoos, my sofa, overpriced Apple products, chocolate, nerf battles

Dislikes fruit, vegetables, spiders (nothing needs that many legs)

What does a typical day look like?  It must start with a cup of tea, that’s vital. From then on we’re ready to open the email inbox and get started. I am currently working on the Connections North service, helping to deliver Drug and Alcohol awareness raising sessions and connecting people in with our other services. This means there really isn’t a typical day as we can be out delivering a session, attending a youth fair, meeting and networking with other organisations, and providing emotional support to Mick as the only other male member of staff in the Ballymena office.  This is what makes the role so interesting as we are out meeting and engaging with new groups and people all the time, no two days end up being the same.

How have you found your experience of coming to Start360?  It has been easy to settle into the role and into the team in Ballymena, simply because of how welcome everyone made me feel and answering all those silly questions you have when you’re a new start. It has been great getting to know everyone and I have been made to feel part of the Start360 family already. I am really enjoying coming to work and looking forward to seeing how we progress in the future.
