Alison Gammell joined go-centric as an agent in February, and has recently been promoted to the role of lead trainer. Here, she tells us about a typical day in her working life.
Please can you describe your role within go-centric?
I’m currently ﬁnding my feet in my new role, but I am really enjoying getting into a new routine to include all my new additional responsibilities. My career has always been in education and training, so in March of this year I moved over to the L&D department as a project trainer delivering training across multiple campaigns.
How do you start your working day?
Each day starts with a strong cup of coffee going through my emails, Teams notifications and checking my calendar for the day ahead!
What does your typical day consist of?
I don’t think there is a ‘typical’ day at go-centric! Each day of the week has its specific jobs but life at go-centric is so fast-paced and anything can come up at the last minute so multi-tasking is definitely a key part of my role.
Who do you work with / who is in your team?
I report to Amy Baddely the L&D Manager and I have two direct reports, Andrea Wrigley and Annabel Cooper who are first-class, well-versed trainers.
How has the Pandemic impacted your role? Have you seen any benefits?
I was made redundant from my previous job due to the pandemic. I think that go-centric have exemplified and fully embraced the new working from home model which has benefitted all staff.
What tips could you give someone who wants a career within go-centric? What are the most important skills and attributes?
Working for go-centric is very much a collaborative approach so having the ability to work as a team-player is vital but also knowing that when working autonomously there is a wealth of support around you.
What’s the best thing about go-centric?
What really stands out to me, during my relatively short time here at go-centric, is how having passion for your job and constantly delivering is truly recognised and rewarded.
