Service operative

Neil is a hard worker and a natural entertainer, he really loves to help our customers out or to be on stage, performing and having fun.  Neil was one of our first service operatives and is a graduate of Bradford Uni, working in a number of different fields over the years, with a thread of musical pursuits throughout.  Away from work Neil is a gifted musician and, when he isn't securely collecting your shredding, he can be found entertaining crowds of paying customers in theatres and clubs all over the UK. 



Caroline is responsible for the day to day running of the Go Shred office and also looks after Credit Control & client liaison alongside Belinda.  Caroline is a former owner of a company that supplied belting for industrial conveyors alongside her husband, so she is very much used to working in a family company environment  and is a valued member of the Go Shred company.



Simon is from Scholes originally, and recently joined the Go Shred family after years of working in the Construction industry supply market.  Simon has been in customer facing roles for most of his working life and enjoys nothing more than helping out our clients with their secure shredding needs.  Away from work, Simon is a big fan of Leeds United and is a huge Mini enthusiast.

Gavin has over a decade's experience of working in the paper shredding industry in various roles.  

Michael and Gavin first met up when they worked together at PHS in their shredding division, which no longer is in existence. 

Gavin was part of the Dewsbury service team that won Depot of the Year on many occasions. We were thrilled to be able to bring him into the team when we needed to expand further in mid 2018 and he has proved to be a huge asset to the company and our customers, with a strong focus on our Customer Service ethic.

Away from work, Gavin has a keen interest in restoring and riding vintage Lambretta scooters and is a very proud family man.

Go Shred Customer Service Director Belinda Cluskey in Huddersfield


Customer Service Director

Belinda has worked in television, engineering, the NHS, tasting sweets in a sweet factory and selling antiques. In between that she is a Mum and a wife. Let's face it, she needed a rest, so she thought it would be easier to help her husband start a shredding company from scratch.

Bel will be the person who more than likely answers the telephone, does the vehicle routing, sends your paperwork or comes to collect your shredding.  Bel loves to do customer visits so there's a good chance you will see her mucking in with the team. Away from work, she loves cooking, eating out and cups of tea with a nice chocolate biscuit whilst watching Homeland or Escape to the Country.

Go Shred Owner Mike Cluskey in Huddersfield



Michael started out working behind the camera in Television and Film after graduating from Uni of Huddersfield, but after 15 years of that moved on to the Shredding & Waste industry and has been in the thick of it for over a decade; with experience of working for one of the UK's largest shredding companies and then years of working for a small family shredding company at Director level.  

He decided to start Go Shred to bring the best of everything he learnt in security, customer service and also dedicate his work to help customers achieve 100% landfill avoidance.

He is a family man, and he loves sports - especially American Football - and also likes to ride and tinker with his vintage Lambretta.
