Why did you apply to Banner Jones?

After completing my BTEC Business Diploma I knew that I wanted to pursue a career working within a well-respected business that prides itself on looking after their customers, employees and local community, Banner Jones stood out from the crowd.

How has Banner Jones assisted in your career progression?

I commenced with Banner Jones in 2012 on a temporary contract as Admin Assistant within the Chesterfield Town centre, I quickly began developing new skills and knowledge and was offered a permanent position where I progressed to  Admin Coordinator, supervising a team of Administration Assistants.  My consistent hard-work, contribution and career development assisted me in being promoted further as HR Assistant.  Banner Jones strives to continuously encourage staff members to develop and learn new skills.  I feel the company have been more than supportive in my career development by funding me through two external HR qualifications.  The Company were more than accommodating with flexible working and paid study leave to aid in the completion of my formal HR qualifications.
