Very friendly and they offer great training experiences.
What do you get up to on a typical day/week?
Typically I spend my days training new starters and getting them up to speed. Teaching them how to use systems and other day-to-day equipment. Also, coaching new starters and long term colleagues.
Tell us about the learning and development?
We have a great development and training team, they offer the right training to all ages and experience levels.
What opportunities are there for career progression?
There are opportunities depending on which direction you want to go in. Being a Buddy is a step up where you have to be involved in training - this will then hopefully progress into a becoming a manager. It’s a great stepping stone if you become a Buddy.
Tell us about the rewards and benefits?
We get rewarded for every day duties, if we go above and beyond, we get rewards called Nibbles. These could be used for many things such as free breakfast or gift vouchers. There are many more benefits, which include having your birthday off to having a week off when you get married.
