"In 2007 I finished my GCSEs at Whitby Community College, unlike many other people my age, I already knew what I wanted to do in regard to a career. So I left school in June 2007, and started searching for the ideal place to start my career in ICT.
After many months of searching, I couldn’t seem to find the right place to start my career, that was when I received a phone call from Town and Country Care in December 2007. It was perfect for me, they required an apprentice in the office, and being in my local area, with training provided, this seemed to be a great opportunity that I couldn't turn down. On December 10th 2007, I was told I was successful and would be the new administration assistant for the Company.
Since then I finished my 6 month probation, and moved onto being the office administrator, answering phone calls, ensuring all staff have the relevant paper work, and making sure the office is running as it should be. Throughout my training, and from invaluable tuition from Mandy and the team, I now have a greater knowledge of the job role as well as the care industry.

I have helped design the new company logo, and received many good reviews, as well as updating and re-designing the website.I have also completed my NVQ level 2 in ICT, NVQ level 2 in Business and Administration, before starting my accountancy qualifcation where I completed my NVQ level 2 then my level 3 and 4 diplomacy in accountancy to become a full member of the Association of Accounting Technicians, which has helped improve my knowlege of my job role, and has given me skills that improve the overall efiiciency of the office.
With these qualifications I then progressed onto becoming the Office & Accounts Manager for the company, dealing with customer and supplier invoices, preparing wages and supporting others in the office, all thanks to the training that Mandy has allowed me to complete. Without Mandy and the team I wouldn't have the great career in life that I have now, and I am very grateful".
