Apprentice Is Our Employee of the Month

Congratulations to our Apprentice Administrator Danielle Beasley who has been named Employee of the Month for April!

Danielle has been with us for almost a year in our administration department and has been studying Business Administration at Croydon College one day a week alongside her work.

Since joining, Danielle has become an important part of what is a very busy department, offering help to her colleagues and being a friendly face to those around her.

Her colleagues have highlighted her outstanding contribution and quality of work, calling her a ‘WIZ KID’ in the office when it comes to dealing with queries.

Danielle is one of many apprentices at Chequers all contributing in their own way to our continued success.

Well done once again and keep up the great work!

Chequers Get Working at Job Workshop

Today we teamed up with Croydon Works to take part in their Get Working Job Workshop at the Whitgift Centre.

Helping the Croydon community find employment opportunities and develop their skills is and always has been an important part of our mission statement at Chequers.

Our Recruitment Officer Arshia and two of our Business Administration Apprentices Joe and Marcus spent the day meeting job seekers, telling them about all our opportunities and how we could help them.

We were also joined at the workshop by representatives from Croydon College and Croydon Council.

The week-long event organised by Croydon Works in partnership with AmicusHorizon has seen a number of training providers and employers offer guidance and advice on how to find employment.

Croydon Works job brokerage is a free recruitment service helping both Croydon residents and employers alike by hosting a number of workshops like this throughout the year.
