Hello again. It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog and for my second one I’m writing following the acquisition of some new skills! I have been offered a great opportunity with Sandstone. Until now my main role has been as an event assistant at one of our many team building activities – which I thoroughly enjoy. I’ve now been offered an extra role within the team over the summer months (well I am a university student and I need to do something with my 3 months off!). I now work with the team on a daily basis in our Head Office.
I was asked if I would like to become a receptionist for Sandstone. I was very quick to say ‘yes please!’. In order for it all to become official I first had to prove that I had the skills required for this new role – it really is very different to working at an event! And the fact that I am sat here writing this proves that I did in fact get through it all ok!
As an organisation that provides team building activities for their clients, it is really nice to know that that Sandstone doesn’t only help clients to improve their teams. The training I have received for this job has come not from just one person and focused on how to use the phones but from a number of colleagues to help ensure that I have the greatest knowledge possible when coming to taking on the job officially.
I think I am ready. If you call in, you’ll be a better judge than me, of course! I look forward to speaking with you…
