Burton Albion Community Trust’s first Kickstart appointment was Corrin Sheldon, 24 from Burton upon Trent.
Corrin joined the team as Kickstart administration assistant, bringing with her previous experience from the leisure and hospitality industry.
After 6 months with Burton Albion Community Trust working across various scopes of work, Corrin is joining the trust full time this month as Community Business Administrator.
“During my Kickstart placement I have been working across Health and Wellbeing, Football in the Community and the general business, doing a range of different tasks. These included helping out on the weekly over 50’s sessions by creating quizzes, supporting our wellbeing walks and undertaking general administrative tasks. I have also helped at the vaccine centre and other sessions across the trust which I have thoroughly enjoyed.”
Corin has now been offered a full-time position with BACT as a Community Business Administrator within the facilities team. Her ultimate goal is to go into management. BACT and the Kickstart scheme has given her the opportunity to work towards a Level 2 in Leadership and Team Skills.
“Thank you BACT for everything you have done!”
Sarah Evans, Education and Employability Manager, said,
“Corrin’s story is a huge success for both her and Burton Albion Community Trust. Being able to utilise the Kickstart scheme has provided Corrin with an opportunity to help her reach her goals.”
“The pandemic has been difficult for many people, its been great to see Corrin grow in confidence. She’s a Burton Albion person and we are excited to see her career continue to grow with Burton Albion Community Trust.”
