In a week that saw @Growing_Talent 30th Employer Speed Dating event, it was great to hear what the applicants thought…. Thanks to the employers that took part
The picture below features Jay – manager to Shari @Masterfix – view after the first week of Growing Talent 29! Scoring the majority of 9 and 10 out of 10 for all employability areas Shari has talked every task given to her with enthusiasm and energy to learn.
From Shari’s point of view, it’s still early days. This is a completely new environment – out of her comfort zone but she’s keeping an open mind and learning, learning, learning.
What a fabulous start!Master-fix
If you are an employer looking to recruit a different way, why not consider Growing Talent and literally ‘Grow Your Own’!
Equally, if you are looking for a role and need a confidence boost, why not drop the usual recruitment tools – cv, formal job interview – willing to learn, jump out of your comfort zone like Shari – why not apply?
Last week was the 28th Orientation and Holistic element of Growing Talent! We covered a lot including:
- Emotional intelligence and behavioural impact
- Conflict styles and management
- The power of body language
- Nutrition on a budget – the perils to avoid
- Wellbeing windows and non-negotiables
- Basic finance tips and tricks
- Workplace ettiquette
- Case studies – what would you do in these real situations?
- Facing fear and overcoming procrastination to move forward
- Fake it until you become it
- Automatic habits
- Challenging thoughts
- Schedule in self-care
Working from etc venues in Fenchurch Place, London Monday – Thursday last week, we enjoyed an energising breakfast, mid-morning break, full on lunch with hot and cold options, desserts and cheeses. Smoothies, vegetable shots and tea, coffee (in many different compilations) as well as water!
On Thursday Paul, Ella and Suaad’s prospective employer was able to join us for a networking lunch along with Anna and Mick from DWP. Ella, Florence and Suaad shared some of their experiences over the week and questioned Paul, Anna and Mick on how they had dealt with a range of things from Covid to conflict both at work and in their personal lives. I sat and listened with pride at how their confidence had grown over that few days. Our guests were very generous in sharing past and present experiences. Mick’s previous life in the Met Police gave a lot of insight that maybe we don’t always think about. It was a powerful reminder that everyone has a back story we usually know nothing about.
After the ‘grilling’, We had a sumptuous lunch together before departing for the week.
The feature photo above shows Ella, Suaad and Florence completing their @I-act Managing and Promoting Positive Mental Health and Wellbeing ready to use some of the tools and learning to empower their resilience in the workplace as well as support those around them where they feel safe to do so.
So what did Ella, Florence and Suaad think of they journey so far?
“I enjoyed all of the workshops and found them very informative- I didn’t necessarily have the most open mind (I generally don’t about lots of ‘work training’ things) in advance of attending but Jane’s attitude and openness made me want to attend. What I enjoyed the most (besides the food which was phenomenal) was being able to openly share my background, hopes and fears, experiences with others in such a safe and encouraging environment. So much about looking for work requires us to be constantly positive in attempts to oversell ourselves. What Jane does so well, and what I enjoyed the most, was being able to be a whole person- with room for improvement but a clear pathway to that improvement. It was such a boost to my self-esteem and made me feel that there were practical steps to moving forward that didn’t involve berating myself for not having achieved them yet.”
“I found the ‘five second rule’ very practical- I could definitely recognise that in myself and the way my brain talks me out of doing things I am worried about. I also found the discussions around confrontation and interpersonal workplace relationships (and outside) really helpful. Also the continual emphasis on maintaining good channels of communication is definitely something I am trying to keep permanently in mind until it becomes second nature.”
“Personal well-being and learning how to structure your work day to make sure your mood is optimal and you’re making the most of your day. If you take a proactive stance and not react to what life throws at you, you can be in control and change the quality of your day to day experiences.”
“Jane has been wonderful over the week. The way the programme was delivered over the week shows this is something Jane deeply cares about and enabling participants with the right information and boost of confidence/morale is just as important as securing a job. After facing unemployment you have to mentally prepare yourself before starting a job, you may feel out of the loop or in a low mood. By completing a holistic short course beforehand, it allows you to evaluate how you are doing on a scale and gives you insight to what to work on going forward.”
“The I-Act course is a great source to keep around and use as a reference, it provides a great summary of different types of mental health issues and illnesses. Once again, it is a tool you can use to see how you’re doing on scale and can be used to advocate for yourself and others. Courses such as this are needed to destigmatize the issue of mental health, a simple heartfelt conversation may change the trajectory of someone’s health and even their life.”
“I am very grateful and happy to be given this opportunity, it is a unique and lovely programme that would not be possible if curated by someone who didn’t understand how to genuinely help people (to help themselves!). It’s clear this is a labour of love and it really shows in the quality of the programme and the impact it has on me over just one week. Bravo, thank you!”
“Jane made us feel very comfortable and secure enough to share our personal stories as to what led us to Growing Talent. I also enjoyed the company of the other people on the journey with me. There was nothing that I didn’t enjoy. I looked forward to each day!”
“The whole concept of having a “Holistic Employment Programme” is such a great idea and perfect in my situation. It provides a level playing field for everyone. Thank you!”
If you are unemployed, live in London and interested in a different route to employment – check us out and or speak with your work coach at JobCentre Plus.
If you are an employer with permanent jobs in London which you are willing to train in, why not consider Growing Talent? Like Ella, Florence and Suaad you will have empowered, resilient, enthused, empathetic new talent before you formerly hire them with qualities you wouldn’t usually see in traditional recruitment – and it’s free. Get in touch to discuss.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-57349802 This features a report by KPMG on the situation UK PLC finds itself in: “thousands of job vacancies but no people to fill them” How can that be so?
In other reports from @BBC we know there are 1.7m unemployed and over 4m on furlough who may not have jobs to return to when furlough finally ends.
There seems a huge disconnect.
From the people I’ve spoken to over the past fourteen months I think there’s an elephant in the room we are not addressing. Fear.
Fear of stepping outside their door.
Fear of leaving their family.
Fear of stepping onto public transport.
Fear of walking into a new environment.
Fear of getting to learn a new role.
Fear of a new routine
Fear of not being respected by colleagues
Fear of not ‘gelling’ with the team/management
Fear of losing this new job
Fear of failing
There is an expectation employers will address this fear. Those integrating the new ISO45003 guidelines will go a long way to achieving this. Using Growing Talent to gain new talent will see them go even further in achieving the goal of sustainable new talent who have grown into the available role through the methods taught on Growing Talent to flourishing adding real value to everyone.
If you have a real job to fill, why not consider www.growing-talent.co.uk? It’s completely free and not a Government funded programme.
The global pandemic has seen businesses change the way they operate to get the results they want.
Isn’t now the time to change the way you recruit to reveal those hidden gems of talent you’ve potentially been missing?
#psychosocial #risks #business #leadership #talent #socialmobility #inclusion #diversity
Ever put your trust in someone who’s then let you down?
It’s a situation we can all relate to – especially at work.
A conversation with someone in this position recently reminded me of a couple experiences in my distant past. The trouble with some humans is it can sometimes take repeat experiences to learn the lesson!
Similar to the person I spoke to recently, I was in a recruitment admin role in a complete rut. I knew the role was never going to expand and neither was the micro business it was in. One of the clients headhunted me to a role in their new start-up. Looking back, I didn’t reflect on the offer to check it was real and what I wanted. I believed everything I was told after all the offer was made by a client – they wouldn’t exaggerate the truth…..would they?
Of course! The thing I’d buried at the time was they were human first and foremost.
At that point in time, I was bored, frustrated and going nowhere professionally so I accepted the offer which I quickly realised was a big mistake! I could do nothing other than try to make the best of things until something better revealed itself. After all, who can leave a job without another to go to when they have bills to pay?
Shortly after came my repeat lesson. I was approached by a headhunter I knew about an ‘exciting new opportunity’ to set up a talent hub within a business who had done a lot of research and had interested clients lined up to use the hub’s services.
Too good to be true? Yep it was. The opportunity was real but they had done no research. There were no interested clients lined up.
The difference this time was my attitude. This was a blank canvas. I could grow it how I wanted it to be. Over a number of years I grew that talent hub into a multi award winning programme which made a real difference to many people who had experienced barriers to get into work.
So why share this with you? Well a couple of reasons really:
- We are all human and trust those offering us an escape – without considering it might not be the right escape.
- Sometimes when you make a mistake you can turn it into the most magical thing ever just by changing the way you look at it.
If you are in a rut professionally, frustrated and feeling like you are on a burning platform, take the time to stop and think what your purpose is. Plan your own escape journey to where you want to be. Otherwise you may end up having repeat experiences which are exhausting and worthless.
We all know the pleasure and the pain that Coronavirus has brought. Although we’ve all been in the same sea trying to get to the other side, we’re all in different boats.
It’s been a rollacoaster for everyone – maybe just to different degrees.
For those able to work from home, there’s maybe been the challenge that others in your family have been doing the same! Home schooling for those with children has been an added dimension – not all bad but not all good either!
Some of us have been forced to look at our own wellbeing. If we’re lucky enough to have gardens – they are likely re-designed and weed free! Some may have set some space aside for a veg plot having seen the advantages of growing your own – especially in a pandemic!
Some have taken the time to learn new skills – learn a new language, bricklaying or joined an online choir or logo class.
For some living in rooms without their own space or garden the initial lockdown is particularly tough.
Now we’re nearing the end of lockdown and the end of the furlough scheme which is seeing the unemployment figures rise exponentially. Graduates and those who have finished A levels are leaving full-time education. There has never been so much untapped talent in decades.
The poison chalice of unemployment quickly strips away self-worth and belief even in those previously highly confident with solid work histories. This needs addressing. It won’t work for everyone being put into a job without a programme of rebuilding their self-esteem – enter Growing Talent!
After six years collaboration with Job Centre Plus on Growing Talent, I was approached by two key cheerleaders of Growing Talent – also managers at JCP! – to run some programmes to address this self-esteem void along with knowledge for job searching to give those looking for work the edge wellbeing and so on.
Next week kicks off a week long programme for Jill – JCP manager at Bromley for some of her customers. Followed by two sessions the following week specifically aimed at Graduates. We’re really pleased Sophie and the team at Smart Works are joining us on these session to showcase their amazing offering.
In August a week long course is deliver for Rajen of Job Centre Plus in East London.
Meeting and exceeding the Government’s Kick Start programme our partnership will deliver empowerment to participants to sustainably move forward.
Ask any Growing Talent Associate or Graduate – we’re never deflated and always ready for any challenge!
Can’t wait to get started!Deflatd
The Orientation Week is a series of workshops to boost confidence of those applicants selected by employers for a place on Growing Talent, delivering a permanent, full-time job on completion. It’s carried out at a central London location prior to applicants going on site with their employers.
For the whole of 2019, we’ve carried out all speed dating events, orientation and holistic weeks are Etc Venues in Eastcheap. Breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea is provided along with fresh fruit, tea/coffee/hot chocolate, herbal teas and smoothies/orange juice with breakfast.
From the start of the Growing Talent journey, all participants – known as Growing Talent Associates – feel invested in and start increasing their self-esteem. Their #YesICan attitude increases massively.
During the Orientation Week we have visiting professionals to share communication, art therapy and workplace choices to increase knowledge.
Within 10 minutes of arriving for the start of the Orientation Week, Associates are tasked with their first challenge. To draw a set number of images about milestones in their life and then present them. Yes, public speaking in front of strangers! It works every time to showcase just how strong Associates are. They start believing in themselves, not the perception of their labels.
During this week, Jade from CCF (Customer Care First – an excellent training company Jade started) delivers her bespoke 2 hour workshop with the Associates sharing all the nuances of communication from body language, spatial awareness, tone, emphasis etc to the topics to avoid in effective communication.
Daniel going to Pertemps and Tequila going to Churchill Services discuss topics that are ‘safe’ and ‘unsafe’ to discuss with clients…..
Debbie and Juliet – both going to Park Plaza Hotel in Westminster, doing the same task as Daniel and Tequila above but addressee colleagues/managers….
Jade and the guys above discussing the importance of tongue twisters for loosening facial muscles making it easier to speak for longer.
Tequila and Juliet experiencing how important communication is. Juliet is holding a picture of a pair of boots which she has to describe to Tequila who draws what she hears. Laughter aside, it proves the point we need to ask questions and probe to make sure we have the right information to complete our tasks at work. As Tequila said ‘I never asked if it was a pair!’
The Jade’s session ended with smiles all round in the knowledge the Associates have more knowhow in communication!
Lesley, Head of Health, Safety & Environment at PwC always delivers her excellent ‘Zest for Life’ workshop featuring the 3Rs – Refuel, Rejuvinate and Renewal. Knowledge, information and tips for Associates to look after themselves on the Growing Talent journey and beyond!
Lesley introduces herself and shares her journey of how she got her current role which was unplanned and totally unexpected but ended up being something she loves.
Explaining how humans were not designed for the predominantly desk based jobs we do now, she asked the Associates to think of their roles and come up with suggestions of a body to do their tasks adequately. As you can see the two heads/multiple arms in the drawing below look like something of a SciFi prototype! However, if shows we must be vigilant in taking care of ourselves so our bodies do not suffer.
A key thing is our body bank balance! Things such as coffee – too much is bad but if we follow each cup of coffee with a cup of water it balances out.
Lesley then shared tips on nutrition, saving money by making our own lunches, batch cooking and freezing as well as top tips on relaxation and finding what works for us.
She then set the task of each pair of Associates thinking of three questions for the opposing pair to answer based on her workshop.
Tequila & Daniel devising their questions…..
Debbie & Juliet devising their questions for Tequila and Daniel. I’m glad to report all gave the right answers #payingattention
Smiles all round as Lesley left after sharing key knowledge…..
Emma from Unravelling Minds attends to deliver her Art Therapy workshop and join the Associates for lunch after.
Emma shares her journey from high powered/pressurised career in fashion to complete mental health breakdown. Art was a particular feature in her recovery and she now shares her learning with others. Previously involved with Balloons and the Brain and now Unravelling Minds, Emma runs a unique cafe. A safe non-clinical environment for people to bake and talk together – CBT_Cafe (Cake Before Therapy – what’s not to like!). Check out the remaining dates and information on Emma’s journey below.
Whilst sharing her journey, Emma invites the Associates to select one of three challenges to see how art during their lunch breaks or at any quiet time calms the mind.
- Heart full of favourite things
- Graffiti newspaper
- Illustrate your Growing Talent mantra
- Start with a doodle and see where it takes you
The concentration and quiet in the room was amazing!
Daniel’s mantra with it’s hidden message uncovered
Debbie taking up the graffiti challenge!
Juliet focussing on her favourite things.
Tequila starting off with a doodle which soon filled the page!
Juliet also shared her steps of affirmation.
Time for a group shot before an interactive lunch together.
Various workshops with me continued throughout the week ending with the Social Enterprise Challenge. Up for grabs was £50 cash.
The running challenge throughout the week is to devise and deliver a social enterprise to benefit a local community and vulnerable group living there.
Judges l-r seated are Anna – JobCentre Plus, Judith – Churchill Services, Pedro – Head Judge from Pertemps and Shennell – Growing Talent Ambassador who completed Growing Talent on the 5th programme!
Associates standing l-r are Juliet, Tequila, Debbie & Daniel.
First to present was Debbie delivering her Brighter Futures. Based in Wandsworth it focussed on upskilling ex-offenders by teaching them skills to refurbish a venue given by Wandsworth Council. These skills would enable them to apply for roles with the Council in maintenance as well as FM companies. In return the ex-offenders would share their bad choices and consequences with excluded 10-13 year olds with the target of enabling them to make the right choices. Professionals from law, social services, medical etc would attend to help with any issues the participants experienced. A safe space to learn, grow and become more productive.
Next to present was Daniel with his Health Hotspot based in Orpington. Daniel described the location and need for information and choices for better health. Many people develop intolerances to certain food groups. Learning from others with the same intolerance on recipes, adapting ingredients etc would be hugely beneficial and break down barriers. Equally people making choices based on media/fashion such as ‘clean’ diet, ‘sugar free’ – often includes sugar under a different name!, ‘vegan’ – how to ensure you get enough protein and so on. Learning together builds community spirit.
Juliet’s presentation ‘Brotherhood Marching Together’ targeting the stigma within the Afro Caribbean community towards prostrate cancer using colour, music, joy and information was delivered with passion based on Juliet’s own family experience of the disease. ‘Afro Caribbean men don’t talk about such things’. Mindful of inclusivity Juliet wanted all men in the Brixton area where she lives to be included. So men can support men regardless of their cultural background. Using the 02 at Brixton for the end music extravaganza, the day would start at the Museum of Black History with cancer charity specialists in place to talk about the stigma. Affected men and their families can ask questions in a non-clinical environment. Moving to the square where a plethora of stalls for music, food, clothes would highlight all cultures in the area breaking down barriers. All money raised from entry fees etc would go to research. The event would build support structures for all concerned.
Finally, Tequila shared her vision of Take Action. A unique idea to upskill low income parents in turning their houses into homes and also making them more employable with these new skills such as painting and decorating, tiling, plumbing and so on. Tequila shared her view that children of low income families are often introverted and don’t have a voice. Take Action would enable the children to design their bedrooms to be their ‘space’ and give them confidence in using their voice. Supported by local colleges and organisations like B&Q the change delivered would be lifelong and really make a different.
The judges had a tough time whittling down these great ideas to just one winner. Who was it????

Ahead of lunch with the Associates, the judges shared their journey to the current roles along with their top tips for shining at work.
After completing their evaluations after lunch, the Associates left to relax over the weekend ahead of starting on their employer sites.
Check back to see how they get on…..
Challenge is the right word! Faced with the prospect of having to devise and deliver a project to benefit a local community and have a revenue stream, really tests our workshops on ‘Fake it until you make it’!
Negative overthinking gives way to confidence and ownership. It’s a privilege to watch everyone learn together, nurture each other and step up to this challenge on the final day of the Orientation Week.
So, how did the Growing Talent Associates so?
Stallion Cycles by Calum, below who is joining Park Plaza Hotel at Westminster. Living in a small village, Calum had noticed how congested the single road in and out was – especially when on his driving lessons! Calum’s idea was based on the ‘Boris Bikes’ of central London but for those living out of London in semi rural areas or traffic hotspots.
Pegasus devised by Brendon was set in the Brookhouse Road community centre where he lives. Addressing self esteem, personal belief using a mixture of sports and professional encouragement. Brendon is a little camera shy so no photos of his excellent presentation.
Scripts by Romain, above based in part on his own experience discovering acting as a vehicle away from the wrong path and crime. Taking over a disused cinema, Romain had a number of strands to using art. Life skills would be taught to 5-11 year olds – kindness and respect of others. His core audience were 15-25 using all the potential career opportunities in a theatre for them to try and consider. In addition, rooms above the theatre would be rented out for studio space and similar. Romain joined Park Plaza Hotel at Westminster.
Life Advice by James seen above focussed on working with high school students on mapping personality to potential industries for career consideration, he also covered mentoring, investing, general life skills and opened up the opportunity to parents as well. Using a mobile unit he could visit estates/schools easily. James joined Red Personnel.
Strictly Dancing Elderly by Miyuki seen below tackled fitness and isolation in the over 65s combining tea dances with social interaction, tea and of course cake! She based this in Lewisham where she lives and shared her story of isolation since her longterm friend found a partner leaving her alone. With a growing over 65s population , Miyuki’s idea was simple yet effective. Miyuki joined ISS at PwC More London
Street View by Stephan is based in Forest Hill where he lives. An area which has missed out on investment and regeneration over the years, Stephan had noticed how there was a growing population of homeless people on the streets and also the burgeoning art community who had no platform to showcase their work. Street View married the two. A magazine featuring the artists’ work sold by the homeless delivered a solution to address these two important issues which would easily be replicated in other areas. Stephan joined ISS at More London. Stephan presenting below.
Steel Games was Jordan’s idea seen below. Having stumbled into playing the steel drums as a child, he ended up as part of an orchestra which entered into a competition. Jordan’s orchestra come 2nd and they performed on Junior Panorama. Based in Anerley with multiple recent stories of knife crime, Jordan believed his idea would give those at risk of being involved a different path to consider. On one floor, he would have gaming consoles and teach young people ways to use this technology safely as well as a selection of steel drums on the bottom floor. Encouraging all to try out this diverse instrument. Jordan joined ISS at PwC More London
A.I. delivered by Stephen was based on using artificial intelligence to deliver administrative innovations to large organisations such as JCP, NHS etc. The idea being appointments are never missed as A.I. removes the use of human error. A unique interpretation of the Social Enterprise Challenge. Stephen joined ISS at PwC More London seen presenting below.
Lastly Michael worked hard on his E-Library idea even though he was not attending the Social Enterprise Challenge as his employer Churchill Services had a large senior management meeting which Michael presented at instead- see below! Just as nerve-racking I suspect! Michael clearly shone as two senior managers contacted me after this Churchill event to say how impressed they were!
Judges l-r – Mariatu – ISS, Geoff – North London JCP, Patricia – Red Personnel, Jon – PwC and head judge, Judith – Club Quarters Hotel, Pedro – Pertemps & Anna – JCP South London and overall lead for Growing Talent at JobCentre Plus.
As you can see the judges above had a tough job deciding on the winner. After much deliberation the £50 cash prize was won by……
Jon presenting a very surprised Miyuki with her £50 prize for her winning idea ‘Strictly Dancing Elderly’! Very well deserved.
Every judge made a point of saying how good the ideas were, how doable and how socially aware they were. Empowering for all Growing Talent Associates!
Challenging ourselves can be scary, but the sense of achievement in pushing ourselves that little bit further is so worth it.
If you are facing something daunting, don’t overthink it. Fake it until you make it! The benefits are amazing. Just ask the Growing Talent 22 Associates!
What’s remarkable? Lots of things – depending on who you ask!
For employers it’s likely the fact they recruit in a free, no risk way. Selecting from a pre-screened pool of talent, employers don’t select those who can do the roles but those who have the ability to grow into their roles. This is key. The six week journey of Growing Talent enables both parties to be confident the match is right before the point of hire saving time and money.
For participants it’s likely the fact there is a permanent provisional job upfront – the prize they secure on successful completion. They don’t have to rely on trying to ‘sell’ their skills and potential through a cv to secure an interview nor explain gaps in skills, qualification, self-confidence if they manage to secure that elusive interview.
For JobCentre Plus (JCP) – it’s the fact their customers go into permanent jobs and learn skills to stay employed thereby not returning to benefits. In addition, many of their customers not selected by an employer for a permanent role, learn from feedback given to enhance their future employment approaches. While I quote 148 into permanent jobs – JCP will say the figure is much hire – which is great to hear!
For Care Leavers’ Organisations – employment is the critical key to leaving care confidently. Having a steady income enables everyone to make choices in their lives. It gives us all control. It isn’t enough to have somewhere safe to live without the means to pay the rent!
For me – it’s the fact a programme I designed, wrote and delivered is still being funded by a global financial services and is now on it’s 22nd programme! I never expected this and shows the critical key of never doubting yourself – if you do, you’ll talk yourself out of doing anything! If you keep going, you will find solutions for problems as they arise. I also find it remarkable how difficult it is to get this unique, free tool to employers and those looking for work.
Seth Godin – talks about the Purple Cow. When we have so much choice and so little time, we often don’t see what’s there unless it’s remarkable. Cost & risk free recruitment without any catch is remarkable and still doesn’t get ‘word of mouth spread’ What are your thoughts on spreading the word?
It was the first time at our new venue – Etc Venues in Eastcheap – would everyone find it ok? Of course they all did.
The room was buzzing with employers from diverse industries including Northbank BID, Crown Plaza Hotel, Portico, Red Personnel, Pertemps, Park Plaza Hotel, Ballymore, ConnectPlusServicesM25 and Baxter Storey. Armed with their ice breaker questions and summary profile sheets as well as their open minds, the conversation and laughter flowed.
Just some of the employers who joined us for our speed dating session in January………..
Andy of ConnectPlusServicesM25
The format was 10 minutes at each employer table in small groups of 2-3. Following the ice breaker question would be ‘tell me a little about yourself’. Now all applicants had met with me first and been told to prepare an ‘eBay’ style ad on themselves ready for this question! A snapshot of their life – at work, at home and future career desires.
Employers would then select their shortlist of applicants they believe could grow into their roles over the six week journey to meet again on a 1-2-1 basis before provisional job offers would be made.
Everything ran like clockwork until one group went the wrong way mid-way trough causing laughter mayhem! Of course going out of sync meant an employer table was always left without any applicants! Great for coffee/loo breaks though.
Finally, the event was over. I’m not sure who was more exhausted – the employers or applicants! Even new employers agreed this was a unique and interesting method to secure new talent without a cv/traditional interview.
We ended with six people invited to go forward with provisional permanent job offers:
Charlene – Guest Services Agent with Crown Plaza Hotel
Kristina – Guest Services Agent with Park Plaza Hotel
Abraham – Resourcer with Red Personnel
Joseph – Commis Chef with Park Plaza Hotel
Estela – Welcome Host with Portico
Jess – Welcome Host with Portico.
Excited and ready for the challenge ahead, the new Growing Talent 20 Associates prepared for the Orientation Week before going on site to train in their roles……
