“My advice for anyone thinking about applying to TheGrid@CG is jump right in! It is such an amazing learning opportunity and it offers you so much in terms of development.Natalie-Photo

Having worked in hospitality for 2 years, I wanted a job that was something completely different. I came across a job ad for the Academy by chance and thought there was no harm in applying. I really liked the sound of trying out different departments and finding the best fit for me. I really didn’t expect to learn so much about the company in such a short space of time.

Now I am very happy in my new role with my own accounts (all 8 of them!) I manage my own work and no two days in sales are the same. I am really excited about my future here, CG have great succession plans and I hope to progress through the sales department to become an Account Manager”.

Will-picture“Connectivity is a world that I had no knowledge about prior to the Academy: now, it’s everywhere and everything! It excites me to know that the technology in connectivity is always evolving, so there’s always something new to learn. My experience with TheGrid@CG superseded my expectations massively! The Academy’s structure and training gave me a level of security that is hard to find.

Before CG I was working full time in a bar and I wanted to change my life for the better. Being an Account Executive is a lot of fun. If you’re a people person, then it’s perfect! I enjoy speaking to customers and most of all, problem-solving! No day is the same in sales!

My future with CG is a clear one, and that is progression is certain if you want it and your willing to work for it! CG has excellent succession plans that offer a peace of mind as well as a target to aim for. One piece of advice that I would give to someone applying for TheGrid@CG would be to prepare for a life-changing experience. Keep an open mind, enjoy the journey, work hard, and you will reap the rewards!”

"My advice would be to trust the process, keep an open mind, have fun, and most of all be eager to work hard and you’ll succeed.

 By spending a whole week in each department, I got a real insight into what role would suit me best (which was surprisingly different to what I initially thought!). I like that the whole process is completely new to me, so starting fresh, being willing to work hard and learn in a new environment is thrilling.

 I’m really excited about my future at CG because I’m flourishing in what I’m doing and still learning every day."

"One of my worries was getting a job that I wasn’t passionate about, but finding CG and working in the NOC has been a dream come true, I use skills from my previous qualifications every day.

I'm very excited, there are many progression routes I can take and CG provide so many training options, they want you to succeed and help you progress.

 I'm over the moon with my new role, its fast paced and the time files, the team are great as well."

"After 4 years of managing teams in the hospitality industry, I wanted a career change. I heard from a family friend that CG had a great working environment and team to match It was in an industry I have been interested in since I was young so grabbed the bull by the horns and went for it.

The experience has been far better than I could have imagined. I have never experienced a more welcoming, friendly and supportive team that genuinely want to help you progress and do well.

I couldn't be happier in my new role, it takes what I love about tech and matches it with my skills and qualifications, and the work I do is visible across the entire business."
