Martin is head of facilities for Devonshire Solicitors and also looks after the corporate social responsibility team. He strongly believes businesses can benefit from the enthusiasm that work experience candidates bring to a team, including supervision training experience and an increase in staff morale.
“For example, two years ago a resident from Circle Housing performed so well on the scheme that we offered them a permanent position within the company. They’re still in that role to this day, doing an exceptional job.
I think other businesses should definitely consider supporting these initiatives. It develops individuals, broadens skill sets and provides teams with invaluable support.
Working with Circle Housing has been a very positive experience. The communication between companies is excellent and setting up the scheme was very straightforward. I couldn’t recommend it more.”
