"The calibre of the staff and their work is of an incredibly high standard."
I applied for a training contract position in the 2019 intake, having worked for nearly 20 years in the local produce and horticultural industry. I was keen to work for a top quality firm but wanted to remain local, and Roythornes really gave me that opportunity. I have had a successful career so far therefore the change and firm had to be right for me.
When I found out I had been successful I was shocked and absolutely thrilled that I was coming to work for such a respected and highly regarded firm. The calibre of the staff and their work is of an incredibly high standard.
I have really enjoyed my first seat in the Corporate and Commercial department. The work has been really varied and there is so much experience in the department which reassures you that you have the right supervision and support. The team are all willing to help guide and share their experiences to help enhance your development. And there has literally been no such thing as a silly question.
The work/life balance has been a real breath of fresh air for me given the industry I have moved on from!
I am looking forward to my next seat, to continuing my development and to gaining new experiences within Roythornes. Exciting times!
