Ten2Two North Herts & Beds has hosted yet another successful Getting To Know You workshop. It took place on Wednesday 4th October at the offices of Plug The Gap in Shefford. The event was really well attended by our existing members and it was great to see a few new faces too.

We started off with informal chat and coffee and then moved onto a series of 1 to 1s, where Carol-Anne and I spent time with each candidate, going through their CV’s and finding out more about their careers to date and their aspirations for the future. While we did this our hostess Julie Pitt, of PTG, took great care of everyone by keeping the conversation going and encouraging some lively debate about employer attitudes to flexible working.

Midway through the morning Carol-Anne delivered her CV workshop. It was an interesting and thought-provoking discussion and it was great to see everyone participating. As ever there was a vast array of diverse talent in the room, all with the same mission – to find an ideal part-time role, and that’s where we come in.

To help our candidates even more we have some more workshops, on a variety of themes, planned in. Watch this space to find out more about the events planned for November and December.
