How did you find the selection process?

It was nerve-wracking but also good fun! We had to do it on zoom which made it a bit more challenging especially when my laptop charge lead fell out and I had to scramble to get it connected back in!!

What was training and like?

The training has been amazing! I’ve enjoyed every moment of it, learning new skills is a key thing for me in a job and it’s been an amazing 6 weeks.

Describe your first group in 5 words.

Challenging, enjoyable, amazing, tiring and emotional.

What’s your favourite thing about working at Robinwood?

The support from the other staff. The company really looks after you and the energy you get from the children on the courses is enough to make any hardships worthwhile!

What advice would you give to someone considering applying?

It’s the single most rewarding job I’ve ever had! I get up and are excited to come to work even on a support shift. It’s hard challenging work but ultimately the job satisfaction you have is simply unbelievable.
