Catherine is another young woman from our latest cohort volunteers participating on the ‘Get Into Hospital’ Prince’s Trust Course at Salford Royal Hospital. Catherine has 2 young children and is from Burnage in Manchester. This is her first experience of a work environment having been a full time mum for the past 7 years. Her youngest will be at school full time in the near future, so Catherine was keen to gain experience in order to enter the world of work.
Catherine was on placement as a ‘Domestic’ and worked hard to fit her hours around childcare. Catherine says she really enjoyed the placement; in particular she enjoyed having a daily routine, whilst contact with patients across the hospital was a real highlight for her. Catherine really grew in confidence and as a person as each week passed on the course, and is certain that the experience and skills she picked up throughout the course will help in her search for permanent employment.
We hope Catherine enjoyed her first experience of a work environment, and we wish her all the very best in her future endeavours.
