This week is #NationalCareersWeek. National Careers Week is a celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK. To take part we will be profiling some of our wonderful CCL members who are either studying while working or who have made a career change.
Today, we are celebrating Robyn Field, our HR & Training Assistant.
Robyn joined CCL in July 2014 as an Administration Apprentice, studying Level 2 Business Administration Apprenticeship. On completing her apprenticeship, Robyn took a year out of education and fulfilled a Care Administrator role at CCL. However, Robyn was keen to achieve further in her education, so when she started her new role in HR in January 2016, she decided to complete the CIPD Level 3 in HR, which she did with flying colours! Continuing to thrive both professionally and educationally, Robyn is now studying CIPD Level 5 in HR and continues to succeed in her role as HR & Training Assistant. It is also important to note that Robyn is the mother of two lovely boys (aged 2 and 3), whilst still progressing in her career and gaining qualifications, putting her at the top of her game at the age of 24!
When speaking to Robyn about her school years, she expressed how, like many, she wasn’t sure what she wanted to do, but always knew it would be office based; therefore, after studying A levels at College, she decided she wanted to complete an apprenticeship in Business Administration. Robyn communicated how she liked CCL’s values, the work they do and the feel of the place, so knew it was right for her.
When talking about her job at CCL she said “I like the teamwork and friendly atmosphere. Every day is different and the work is meaningful”. She also added “I find HR interesting, and you can see how the training we organise for the staff has a positive impact on the guys. The training side of my role is also important for our staff to feel supported from the beginning”.
When discussing the benefits of working and studying, Robyn reiterated how it keeps her motivated, constantly developing her knowledge and striving to where she wants to be. In the future, Robyn aspires to continue developing her career in HR and would like to specialise in employment law.
Robyn is an asset to CCL and her years of dedication are very much appreciated. Thank you to Robyn!
