"I'm proud to work for Skills Builder, the impact we have and am privileged to be able to work with such brilliant colleagues."

"It’s always an absolute delight for me to work with just about any member of the team."

"My line manager has been brilliant in making sure that our one-to-one sessions are mainly about me and my professional development. This has made me feel even more valued than I already feel as part of the company as a whole. I'm excited about the new 3-year strategy and the opportunities this will bring to the organisation and to personal development."

I've continued to really enjoy the variety and challenge of lots of different workstreams.
