A day in the life of some of our team

Hear from some of our fantastic staff members below on what their various roles involve. Some also describe how their DofE has helped them in their working life.

Emma Palmer

Role: Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Contract

“I am lucky enough to be on an apprenticeship whereby I spend three months in each department on the contract. I am currently based in Finance but will be moving into our Soft Services department next month. I have also spent three months on the Helpdesk assisting with customer queries.

I don’t have a specific role within each department however I use this time to learn as much as possible so I develop an understanding of how the departments work together to support the trust. My current goal is to be a Facilities Manager however I would like to move into higher roles in the future. The experience I gain during my rotations will put me in good stead to understand all aspects of the business. I am the CIG/CEL Lead for my contract so I am involved in those initiatives to understand how to better the contract and to determine where we aren’t doing so well. It also helps other contracts to give them ideas and to see what they do well and where they can improve.”
