After I finished University in June 2010, I was looking for work and in the November I was offered a weekend working as Receptionist at Crewe Volkswagen; even though it meant driving up from Bournemouth University and missing my Graduation Ball, I did it, so, maybe I had a premonition that Swansway was for me!
After my weekend at Crewe Volkswagen I got a call from the temp agency, asking if I would help out in the Swansway HR department on the Monday.
I worked as a temp in HR for just two weeks and then joined the Swansway crew permanently! I started as Trainee HR Administrator and then in 2013 was asked if I would like to run the payroll function.
The rest is history…. I absolutely love working here; I deal with everyone across the board, employees, our brands, customers and third party companies (e.g. our payroll provider). No two days are ever the same, and with the Company continuously growing there is never a dull moment.
It’s strange because my mum’s a careers advisor and she made me do a ‘What Job Suits You’ questionnaire when I was in high school; you answer 500+ questions, and then it produces the top 5 jobs for you … and HR was one. Clearly it was spot on!
