Cobolt Recruitment is a leading recruiter in the finance and property sector. Since joining the team last October, it has been a delight to watch Software Developer Technician Apprentice Shea grow in confidence whilst developing his tech skills.
LDN Apprenticeships highlights a clear message of what makes an AWESOME Apprentice; they must show energy, enthusiasm, willingness to learn, ability to take feedback and propensity to take action (EEWAP).
Shea was nominated by his Learning Development Specialist – Kevin, and the feedback was provided by Shea’s line-manager and Global Operations Director at Cobolt Recruitment – Sara Burton
You can read the full nomination below!
Shea is an energetic member of the team which he needs to be working in the salesfloor. He is always smiling no matter how tricky the problem!
Shea is very enthusiastic about our system and that is beginning to rub off on the sales team who aren’t always so enthusiastic about it! He is always positive when a problem needs to be solved, that there is a solution out there somewhere!
Willingness To Learn
Shea has had to learn in this role, as we push the configuration further, he needs to be able to do more and more advanced things with it. He has taken the lead in an internal task force team and also learnt how to run workshop sessions.
Ability To Take Feedback
One of Shea’s biggest strengths is his willingness to take feedback, not least from the system when “computer says no”. He has been able to take on more responsibility for his own cases, learning how to work effectively with 3rd parties now following feedback on previous cases. He is currently working on his skills on training others which involves taking on board lots of feedback. He never gets down hearted about feedback and always looks at it positively. He’s had plenty of positive feedback too which he is obviously pleased to get – this has come in the form of 2 “backbone” team member of the month in the last 6 months, as well as individual emails thanking him for his work on particular projects.
Propensity To Take Action
Shea is not one to watch the world go by, and so is always making and updating to do lists. He doesn’t settle for an “alright” job but keeps going until it is perfect.
