They Say Things Happen For A Reason by Beth Hunter (ActionCOACH Creative PA)
For most of us this past year has been unprecedented and a struggle to say the least… And some have felt the effects of the pandemic more so than others! Due to my previous Events Coordinator role, I unfortunately experienced first hand the disruption of the pandemic, which eventually caused me to become fearful of my job security. Loving my role within ‘normal’ circumstances and hesitant to consider leaving due to the current situation, however on the other hand not wanting to continue feeling unfulfilled and just taking each day as it comes, I decided to have a ‘nosy’ at what opportunities may be out there – not expecting to see many due to the current economy, and in all honesty not really seeing any, except for one advert for a Creative PA role, which surprisingly created a fire in my belly, and although I had no previous PA experience I knew I just had to apply…
Fast forward to an initial conversation with the General Manager Aimee, I felt like I’d known her for years! After the initial butterflies had disappeared, no more than a minute in to the call, I felt like I was talking to a friend or family member – we just clicked, and what should have probably been a ‘quick chat’ turned into a 30 minute conversation, and I knew I not only wanted, but I needed that job!
Two interviews later, and a job offer accepted I’m now in my 3rd week within the Creative PA role, working with the ActionCOACH Chesterfield team and loving everything about it! From day one I’ve felt like part of the family… So much so, last week (my second week) I even wore my hair naturally (and NO ONE sees my natural hair) so this just goes to show how comfortable I have been made to feel, in such a short space of time! And it will be exactly the same for you… Fiaz, our fantastic MD and Certified Business Coach, ensures that all of the team are introduced to our clients so that it really is a family affair and we’re all made to feel comfortable and part of something special, working together to help develop and support each other on our journey (professionally and personally) of success, just as a family should do!
And so, if you’ve come across ActionCOACH Chesterfield, then truly believe that you’ve come across us for a reason… Just like I did, and I’m so glad that I did!
