Daisy recently took part in a week of work experience at BJF Group to learn more about what we do and to get a feel for what she might want to do as a career.
We caught up with her to find out how it went:
Why did you choose BJF Group for work experience?
Apart from the fact that my Dad works here and is very positive about the business I thought it would be a good experience getting to know something that I have an interest in as a potential career.
What were your first impressions on Monday when you arrived?
I was initially a bit nervous and apprehensive but soon was put at ease by the team who were all very friendly and welcoming.
Which departments did you work in?
I got the opportunity to spend time with a range of departments including health and safety, Facilities Management, accounts, procurement, Construction and HR. I really enjoyed my time in accounts because it is something that I have an interest in as a career and and I gained valuable knowledge as well as being able to operate the computer system under supervision.
How would you sum up your week at BJF?
I enjoyed the experience, it was fun with friendly staff, who were interactive and willing to share knowledge. Everyone made me feel welcome and thanked me for my contribution.
I learned new skills such as how to deal with PO’s/Invoices and aligning each to ensure cost and actual were exact.
Would you recommend anyone else to come to BJF for work experience?
Yes, definitely because it is a good place to learn, other people understood why I was here and were willing to share their knowledge.
I would like to thank BJF for the fantastic opportunity.
