What was it about this position that appealed to you?

I’ve always wanted to work on a farm or in the countryside. This is what encouraged me to apply for this position.

How did you find it?

I have really enjoyed working with the animals, I get a lot of satisfaction from it. I’ve also enjoyed coming in to work every day and working with the people on the team. Everyone is happy every day when you come in. It has been class being here.

What is the main memory you will take from being here?

Feeding the animals when there are no members of the public in. It’s very peaceful when there are not many people around.

Can you tell us something about your new job?

I have an apprenticeship, I’m going to work in a tree plantation. My Apprenticeship is in Tree Surgery, its starts with Level 2, Level 3 and leads on to a degree level qualification at East Durham and Houghall College.

This experience absolutely helped me get my apprenticeship. It was the experience that I didn’t have before coming that helped secure me this job. This apprenticeship is my ideal job.”
