What Angela thinks about Angela
I developed a health condition as an adult and wasn’t sure how it’d affect my performance at work. At first, I did volunteering. Then a mentorship course. And eventually got to see the disability advisor at the Job Centre. It was through them that I heard about BECO. I agreed to come for a trial. Which turned into six months. And 4.5 years later, I’m in Employment Support here. What do I do at BECO.? Lots! I help our staff update their CVs, help them with job-searches and to apply for benefits, to complete application forms, and I also help prep them for interviews. I’d like to be a job coach, mostly for people with learning difficulties or health issues. I’d also like to teach English as a second language. I’m empathetic. With good communication skills. Good at multi-tasking (you have to be in this job!). And adaptable (again...you have to be in this job!)
What Angela’s manager Gill thinks of Angela
Angela is a calming presence in the office. She’s reliable, dependable and unflappable. Since I arrived, her job role has changed a lot and she has adapted and taken to it like a duck to water. She is very approachable which is crucial in HR, particularly at BECO. Our department deals with more welfare here than most HR departments, so she probably has more experience in this area than most people in comparable roles. Importantly, she’s willing to learn more skills too.
What Angela’s colleague Janet thinks of Angela
Angela has a positive attitude that helps her accomplish the task she is assigned to. She will go the extra mile to give her best to any task she undertakes. Her professional qualities are admired, and she’s a good human being. Her helpful nature to others is not limited to matters of work, but she is willing to extend her support to personal matters too. Angela is a good listener and people find her approachable and are willing to share their problems, which she solves with intelligence and care. She would make a great employee to any organisation.
