Michael, who is an RBH tenant and grew up in Kirkholt in Rochdale, left school, studied at College and then went on to do an IT degree at Manchester Metropolitan University, working in a number of warehousing roles throughout his studies and full time for 3 years on completion to support himself. Not sure which steps to take next, he’d explored working as an electrician completing a L3 Electrical Diploma before coming to RBH and completing a one week work placement with the electrical team back in 2019.
Michael’s positive attitude and willingness to learn shone through whilst on placement and we were pleased when shortly afterwards, Michael successfully secured a permanent role with RBH as an IT Assistant providing fantastic first line support to users across the whole organisation. Michael’s impressed hugely in this role, demonstrating great customer care skills and problem solving ability. His willingness to go the extra mile and commitment to the organisation were recognised when he was chosen as winner of the RBH’s VIP (Values in Practice) Best Newcomer Award 2021.
Congratulations to Michael on his success. If you’d like to hear more about Michael’s role and career to date with RBH click here.
