    Tell me about a memorable moment during your career at Brachers. How did it come about and what did it mean to you?

    When I was lucky enough to move roles from secretary to IT trainer. There was an interview and presentation process which made me extremely nervous but luckily I got through this and was fortunate enough to be given the position. The training was something completely new to me, but thankfully I had excellent support from my manager at the time who helped develop my skills to take the role forward. I’ve not looked back! I didn’t ever think that my career path would take me down the training route.
