In August, the Grit team were invited to attend Social Personnel’s inaugural summer boat party. A leading recruitment agency for social workers, Social Personnel have recently named Grit as their charity partner. The summer party was hosted to celebrate staff achievements and was also an opportunity to speak to the Social Personnel team about Grit and the work we do. Big thanks to Tommy Love, CEO, and, Laura Baxter, Customer Relations Manager, for organising for us to be there.
Mohamed, Grit’s Enrolment Co-ordinator, speaks about his experience on the boat:
"The first time I heard about attending the boat party to represent Grit, I was ecstatic! The warm welcome we received totally exceeded my expectation. We felt like part of the team the minute we arrived. Lucky for us the lovely Chris [Chris Griffin – Commercial Director] briefed us on names and titles before we got down to business. He and Laura were on hand throughout to make us feel welcome and accepted.
We were overwhelmed by how positive and energetic the staff were. We had the pleasure of getting to know some of the admin teams from different boroughs, the recruitment team and the management. It was very interesting to hear the different aspects of what they do and that they enjoy helping others, with a real commitment to giving back to the community and to young people - refreshing! I learnt just how much this company has excelled. Not only have they come a long way in a short amount of time they have continued to maintain great relationships.
I want to say thank you to Social Personnel for the amazing invitation, the opportunity to get to know their team and experience the fun atmosphere. I particularly enjoyed dancing my way through the night but wonder if I might take some dance lessons before the next one
