Jacqui Stanbury, Housing Support Worker for BHT’s Response Services has completed the Mentor training.
Jacqui is the second worker from Response Services to take on the role of Intern Mentor.
The Mentor training course has been co-designed by current and previous Interns and benefits from their personal knowledge of what works and what is necessary to support someone towards success.
Intern David Tongs and I attended BHT’s Eastbourne Advice Centre, today, to discuss their new Intern role.
We met with Manager Sue Hennell and trained Mentor Martin Watts who is a legal advisor at the centre.
The role is very well thought out and will provide the Intern with an opportunity to gain on the job experience in general office duties and administration, the provision of generalist and specialist advice to clients, and working with clients who are experiencing housing issues and homelessness.
Intern Angela Ferrero began her six month work placement today in the Finance Department of BHT.
This is the first time the Department have provided a placement and will be supporting Angela in gaining skills and experience in areas such as; banking cashbook entries, invoices inputting for purchase ledger and preparing monthly bank reconciliations for approval on computer system Access Dimensions.
The Intern Programme wishes Angela the best of luck for the next six months.
Natasha, our Intern in the Fundraising and Publicity Team successfully passed her probationary period today.
During the probationary period there is a focus on the basics of time-keeping and attendance, boundaries, professionalism and engagement with clear guidelines and targets for Interns to work towards.
The probationary period helps Interns settle into their placement and ensures that best practice is embedded before moving on.
Tasha has settled in brilliantly and has already proved to be a great help to our fundraising activities. Her enthusiasm and commitment to delivering great fundraising events is really positive and refreshing!
