“I joined Provide’s Academy of Excellence when I was 18 years old as I didn’t have any previous experience in recruitment. Straight away, Provide gave me the tools I needed to do the job rather than just throwing me in the deep end to figure it out for myself. It made me feel very comfortable about what I needed to do.
You could tell the training was an accredited scheme because of all the great information in the course. I still use the training materials today, two and half years later, as it is such a good reference guide for the job. Even though I’ve adapted my skills now, I still dip in for a refresher.
This is an amazing career. I don’t see it as a job. I can see my future and how my goals will be achieved. No one else I know in other industries or companies feels that way about their job. My colleagues and the Directors here are like a family. I know others who work in recruitment elsewhere who have the polar opposite experience to mine with management and colleagues.
Provide really cares about us. I know the part I play in the business. Working at Provide has allowed me to do things I would have never thought I’d do. I can buy what I want and go where I want because of this job. Sometimes I have to pinch myself. It’s hard to believe sometimes. It’s a great feeling to know I can really do this!”
