Hi Caroline, what would you say has inspired you to get where you are today?
I would say it’s the managers that I’ve had at work and the faith that they’ve had in me. I think sometimes I didn’t have that faith in myself so knowing that they supported me and wanted to send me on training courses really helped. I feel like I’ve progressed so much since I’ve been working at The Runnymede and that’s because of them. Also, seeing my team around me progress has been really inspirational. For example, we’ve taken on people without qualifications and have seen them do really well and often reach management roles, which I think is pretty amazing.
What words of wisdom did female relatives share with you when growing up?
I was always told to work hard and not expect things to be simply handed to me. Also, to never let anyone tell me that I was not good enough, to be proud of everything I achieve and to know my value.
