Within five months with Enterprise plc Mark has been promoted from meter engineer to line manager. Not only is he managing every aspect of contract infrastructures but he is managing a team of 11 men to fulfil those contracts. From quality control to reporting his management skills have made such a difference his team of men hail him as the best manager they have ever had.
Marks own determination and skills coupled with the knowledge and skills he received from his training with Brookhouse Training has provided him with a competitive edge to enable him to quickly advance his career.
With 29,000 military posts due to go by 2015 it’s hard for any service man or woman to contemplate what they might do on Civvy Street but for Mark he made the right decision to re-train and has secured a career with a future.
Mark says: “Finding Brookhouse Training made a huge difference. The big attraction was the promise of a quality placement that would give me that all-important work experience. The course itself went really well. The centre was very homely and the staff were friendly and helpful. I knew nothing to start with but the tutors made the learning enjoyable and always gave the time needed to answer our questions. They also stressed that the course gave the fundamental knowledge and skills – and that the real-world learning would be our big chance to develop our craft. They were absolutely right!
