I’m what you would call a ‘boomerang employee’. I left Business Systems in 2019 and nearly 4 years later, I’ve made a comeback.
Having started my Apprenticeship Scheme as ‘Dale – a young and inexperienced 17 year old’, I spent the rest of my teenage years and most of my twenties at Business Systems.
I started off as a Trainee Workshop Engineer. A few years later, I moved up into the role of Technical Support Engineer, and then Project Engineer, where I was managing solution implementations for our customers. I then made the leap into Pre-Sales Consulting. One thing remained the same – throughout my time at Business Systems, I was always given the opportunity to advance my career.
As this was my first ever ‘real job’, I, like many others, wondered what else was out there in the big wide world. I owed it to myself to see. So I left Business Systems in 2019.
Fast forward nearly 4 years, and I’ve come full circle. I’m back again, as a Monitoring & Compliance Consultant. I’m back being part of a ‘People First’ Team and I couldn’t be happier.
It’s a really exciting time for me to be re-joining the Business Systems Team and I can’t wait to continue helping our clients solve business challenges.
I’ve come a long way from when I first started my career at the age of 17. I’ve advanced my skills. I’ve grown. I’ve ventured out to see what else is out there and luckily I’ve always had a supportive team behind me and employers who value wellbeing and provide the opportunity to grow and develop.
I’m officially now part of the Business Systems ‘Boomerang Employee club’ (along with a few others out there!). And it feels great.
