Our Rising Star success story this month is Olivia Wagner. Prior to securing her recent new role, she attended Boldon School and completed work experience in Beauty and Hairdressing.
Olivia came to Rising Star and expressed an interest in potentially developing her career in Childcare, but wasn’t sure which direction she wanted to take. We initially met with Olivia and arranged an interview for her at a South Tyneside Council Nursery that is a S.T.A.N.L.E.Y Centre. She impressed the employers and subsequently started a 15 week Traineeship where she excelled in her new role. This gave Olivia the opportunity to develop her skills, choose from a wide variety of interests and gain a nationally recognised qualification.
Keith Oliver, Rising Stars Recruitment Consultant said “Olivia excelled in her day to day work with the nursery children and Business Administration duties. Her initial feedback from her employer was excellent”.
Whilst completing her traineeship, she developed an interest in Business Administration and once her traineeship was complete, Rising Star continued to support Olivia with the help of searching for her next career development.
Keith Oliver said “Olivia’s confidence, people skills and interview techniques improved a great deal within a relatively short period of time, due to her initial work experience as well as her time spent with our Learning & Development Coach Susan Joel. She also attended our training centre on a weekly basis and showed great determination to find work”.
A role came available working for The Quality Hotel at Boldon and after arranging an initial interview with the hotel, she secured a role as a Front of House team member.
Everyone at Rising Star would like to congratulate Olivia on her success at securing her new role at The Quality Hotel and we wish her all the best for the future.
