Started working for Energy & Utility Skills: April 2018
What do you enjoy most about working at Energy & Utility Skills?
There’s a huge emphasis on employee wellbeing and flexibility. When I left my previous role, I had recently become a grandmother and wanted to have the time to support my son and his partner. My part-time hours at Energy & Utility Skills mean I can utilise my extensive skills and knowledge in a new sector, whilst also spending quality time with my grandson. It’s a win-win situation and I’ve no regrets.
I consider myself as being in the twilight of my career. One of the reasons I chose to work with Energy & Utility Skills is that the role provided the opportunity to work as part of a team. I can honestly say; the transition from being a team leader to team member has worked well. I’m working with people who are passionate about what they do and who strive to deliver a great service to our clients. The great thing is that I’m continuing to acquire new skills and knowledge which is something I relish – and I get a buzz when I get my Clever Nelly question right!
The opportunity to work flexibility, such as working from home, enables me to balance a career and family, and demonstrates that Energy & Utility Skills values the people that work for them, which is refreshing. They walk the talk in terms of making the office environment a positive place to be; people work hard but also know how to have fun!
It’s a great place to work, and it’s proven by the Investors in People Gold accreditation we were awarded this year.
