Rachel has also completed her Bronze, Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards, showing how determined and committed she is. We offered her a part time position which we are delighted she has accepted. The client she worked for over the summer, researching data to update his customer database, was so pleased with her work that he has committed a fixed number of hours per month and EST match this with research projects for our own business development. As well as the financial incentive, Rachel feels she is gaining valuable work skill experience for the future and EST have an enthusiastic and hardworking team member.
