Originally from Somerset, Samantha relocated to Norfolk in 2001.

Armed with a range of experience predominantly in sales positions working within the Travel, Local Media, Hospitality, and more latterly Construction (Training) Industries she took up the role of Group Training Officer for N.C.T.G. in March 2008.

Helen Vooght-Rogers – Group Training Officer Support

Helen Vooght-Rogers joined NCTG in July 2021 as the Group Training Officer Support Administrator and organises our training courses, social media and website.

Helen moved to Norfolk late 2020 having relocated from Bedfordshire and comes from a background of working in the Public Sector as a Corporate Health and Safety Advisor.  Therefore, she understands the importance for organisations to have access to high quality training for their work force, especially within a high-risk sector such as the construction industry.

Previous to that particular role Helen held a variety of administrative posts in both the public and private sector and  shares Samantha’s ethos for strong communication and customer focus.
