"I was over the moon to be accepted onto The Bayford Foundation training programme – so much that I burst into tears because I was so happy! I started the training with no previous experience of using a computer and the six-week course taught me so many things, which included gaining an insight into the oil industry and learning telephone techniques.
"It is a fantastic place for enabling you to achieve your potential in roles which best suit you. The business has been brilliant in giving me my perfect job, which plays to my strengths and sees me directly assisting our manager Nick Elletson by coaching and supporting our trainees.
"Having been in their shoes already, I love passing on what I’ve learnt and helping them to progress now that I understand more about the wider business. I am more confident than I’ve ever been and get a boost out of seeing The Bayford Foundation evolve knowing I’m doing a good job for a great employer.
"The experience has also helped me improve my confidence and self-esteem, enabling me to launch and manage a fitness Boot Camp, which is now very popular among members of my local community. I would have never thought I could do something like that before joining The Bayford Foundation!"
