After being made redundant from a previous job, Katie secured alternative employment but was approached by Sewell to come for an interview.
She was successful and quit her new job to join the team.
Katie said: “I was starting on a Monday and they rang me and asked me if I wanted to go bowling on the Friday. After nine months, I’d done the Leadership Challenge, an internal development initiative, and my confidence grew. In some companies, you don’t see the directors. Here, they sit down and have a cup of tea with you.
“It’s an open forum to ask questions and it brings people together. The helpdesk was my baby. I felt protective and proud of the system and my team. ”
Katie has since progressed into a Facilities Manager role, looking after a mixture of clients.
