We are proud to introduce our first intern, Ariadne Weir. She is a student of Business Administration in Edinburgh Napier University and over the next six months, she will be trained as a recruitment consultant.
Here’s a what Ariadne has to say…
“Hello, I am Ariadne Weir, today I have embarked on a six-month placement with D R Newitt. I am in my penultimate year of study at Edinburgh Napier University. I have selected to undertake a six-month placement to put knowledge and skills I have gained at university into practice. I believe the opportunity to work at D R Newitt will allow me to gain a whole new array of knowledge in which I can then apply to my final year at Uni.
I am excited to begin work to enhance my work based skills. Working within recruitment is completely new to me which excites me greatly. I aim to take in as much information as possible not only concerning recruitment but the overall running of D R Newitt as a business. I will be working closely with Grant to ensure I distribute my time throughout the company effectively and gain the necessary training.
The first day nerves are definitely apparent although I couldn’t have come to a more welcoming and friendly workplace. The size of the database is slightly daunting although I look forward to when it becomes second nature. I am extremely eager and excited to learn and work for DR Newitt therefore, I am hugely grateful for my next six months here.”
Ariadne, we would like to welcome you as our first ever Intern. This is an exciting opportunity for D R Newitt to learn a new perspective and some fresh ideas for the business. We will check in with Ariadne again half way through her placement to see how things are going.
