Stacey has excelled from the jump and applied her enthusiasm to every aspect of the course. The results of this are clear, she has developed a fierce arsenal of skills from the training and is already well-networked in her new workplace. Lodge have recognised Stacey’s rapid success and have high hopes for her to progress into supervision and management. Stacey said;
Not only has this course developed my knowledge and experience – I have also been supported with careers advice and guidance on how to move up in the security industry. I am really in my element here, surrounded by passionate people with solid management in my corner”.
Stacey came to us at The Point on the first intake of the security academy back in February 2019.Stacey did the 6 weeks course and then went on to get herself a job in security at the new Primark in Birmingham. She has been working there since April 2019.Stacey has been working so hard since that date that she has now been promoted. Below is a copy of what they have said to Mercury regarding this.
“I would like to announce that Stacey Massey has been successful in obtaining the position as Supervisor here at Primark high street. Stacey has shown hard work, determination, flexibility and commitment to not only my team and operation, but to the client and the company as a whole not to mention her excellent customer service and focus, a pure asset to the team.
Claire from The Point said:
“Thank you Paul for the work that you have been doing with my team here at the high street, we have gained pure talent and good workmanship from the support from Mercury and together we are not only delivering opportunities to hard working people but also setting the Lodge standard”
