I chose to go to work as it was where my life was at the time.
I had every intention of going back into education however the necessity hasn’t arisen as I have continued to increase my qualifications through night school funded by my employer.
I heard about the opportunity through my Youth Connexions Personal Advisor.
Youth Connexions sent my CV to the company, I received a call asking me to attend an interview, I attended and 2 days later received a phone call from my employer offering me the job.
Positives: I enjoy working with people, being part of a team in a small business where I feel I can help to make a difference. I like to have a challenge and enjoy working towards targets.
Negatives: Early morning starts. Filing and more mundane tasks although everyone has to do these.
My key advice: Go into something you are interested in doing, try to continue with some form of education either night school or day release.
