We are so pleased to welcome Poppy, for a work experience placement with our team.
Poppy joins us from Oakwood College, a specialist college for young people with learning difficulties and disabilities. After recently delivering a careers talk at the school, we were extremely impressed with Poppy’s positive can-do attitude, and passion for social media and events.
“I am very excited to learn new skills and build relationships with my new colleagues. Everyone has been really kind and helpful towards me. The building at Winslade Park is so grand, I didn’t think I would ever work in a place like this!
I have a condition called Williams syndrome, which affects me in many ways. I have a special chair that supports my back, and if we do go out for a long time I take my wheelchair. Making friends was hard at first, but I have learned to use comic strips and can tell my emotions using a feelings board. This has been really helpful and I’m really grateful for everything the college has done for me”
Poppy has already brought such positivity to our office – we can’t wait for her to help us with upcoming event planning!
