After almost two years of hard work, our employee Laura Hatwell made the decision to move on from the Christchurch Youth Council. We will miss her and have fond memories of working with her, but wish her all the best and hope she attains all the success she deserves.
This meant that we had a vacancy in the Christchurch Youth Council. This gave many of us our first taste of being on the other side of the hiring process. We formed a focus group and then with the help of our experienced advisory group; we went through the process of tweaking job specs, advertising, short listing, creating interview questions and interviewing. This process taught us skills which will help us gain confidence and understanding in our own future work, academic and extracurricular applications.
We are happy to introduce our new employee Kate Burgess who started at the Christchurch Youth Council on the 8th August 2016. We are very excited to see her support us in our future endeavours! If you want to meet her feel free to get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org :)
