Yet another new starter has entered the Bayford Foundation‘s pioneering training environment. Here, rookie data inputter, Nicola Tuke, 43, talks about her first impressions of working for an organisation with a very progressive approach to helping its people succeed.
Georgina Watson, 23, is among our latest new recruits to settle into the Foundation. We grabbed five minutes with her to glean an insight into her fast moving first week as a data cleanser with our busy team.
How did you come to be employed by the foundation?
I was introduced by Interserve, which provides skills, education and employment services and works closely with the Foundation. I had an icebreaker chat with Foundation Manager, Nick Elletson, at their offices, then I was invited up to Hunslet for a formal interview with Nick and data inputter, Chantelle Robinson and I was offered the job a week later.
This is a challenging time when you feel in limbo waiting to hear if you got the job. You’re probably also feeling relieved that the preparation and the interview itself is over – as well as feeling nervous about the outcome.
