What do our people say?
How have you progressed since you joined?
I think I have grown in confidence; I am able to work in a team and get my opinions across, but also speak on my own to senior managers and clients, at times presenting work that I’ve created myself
I’ve had to travel for projects – I worked in Glasgow for a couple of months and then London for about eight months. It helped me to be independent and to expand my network. I’ve met a range of interesting people that weren’t as aware of the BrightStart scheme. It’s encouraged me to take on work that would push me beyond what I thought I was capable of. As an added benefit, I also got to explore new cities in the evening, going to see musicals and popular tourist attractions.
What’s been your standout proudest moment so far?
My work with UK Police forces. I worked on a project to implement new technology that would improve productivity. My role was to support communication with the forces, and I managed the social media profiles for the project, monitoring communications and sending emails, managing the distribution list, creating a social media strategy and presenting it to clients, as well as helping to organise an event attended by roughly 200 police IT members.
What’s special about the people in your team?
There are loads of people in my team that are around my age, and everyone is really friendly and sociable, including the managers. Of course you need to have a degree of professionalism, but it’s nice being able to chat casually to people while working or having lunch.
All of my managers are incredibly dedicated and hardworking, and it means a lot when they take the time to explain a piece of work to me, or congratulate me on a job well done.
