How and when did you join Gough & Kelly? 

I joined Gough & Kelly in September 2023 after looking for a business apprenticeship after leaving high school. The HR Apprentice job description at Gough & Kelly seemed much more interesting and varied than the general business administration roles I had previously been looking at, so I applied, and the rest is history. 


How has your career developed? 

Gough & Kelly is my first job since leaving school. Although I had an interest in Business/HR, I had no previous experience in the field. However, this apprenticeship has provided me with the opportunity to learn on the job and develop new skills that will help me progress in my career. In addition to my apprenticeship, I am also undertaking a HR qualification (CIPD Level 3).


Tell us about a typical day at Gough & Kelly? 

It's hard to give a typical day at Gough & Kelly because every day is so different. I usually start by sorting through my inbox and dealing with any urgent tasks. After that, my day can involve a range of activities such as recruiting event security, screening, and vetting applicants' BS7858, checking their documents, responding to reference requests, or updating important spreadsheets to keep the HR department informed and up to date.


What do you enjoy most about your job? 

I really enjoy the variety of tasks that come with my job. Every day feels like a learning opportunity. The team at Gough & Kelly is incredibly friendly and supportive. As a new starter, they have gone out of their way to make me feel comfortable and part of the team.


What is your passion outside of work? 

Outside work, I love spending time with family and friends, walking our dogs, dining out, and exploring new activities. Additionally, I enjoy traveling and soaking up the sun.
