Shannon Stevenson, Office Administrator

Before I got Engaged

After completing secondary eduction I applied for a Business & Administration apprenticeship, it just so happened that this position was based in a local recruitment agency employed as their Office Administrator.I found working within a recruitment environment a very diverse and rewarding position and it allowed me to develop my skills and knowledge within the sector. I was involved with screening candidates, prepping CV’s, advertising jobs, marketing and was tasked with resourcing some clerical roles myself, which led to my first few placements!

I started to put this knowledge to good use and volunteered in a local youth centre, helping young people with employability sessions, CV creation and applying for jobs/apprenticeships. This led to me being offered a position as a Youth Worker with North Lanarkshire Council in early 2016 which I am still employed in evening posts. After a contract role in the recruitment team at City Facilities Management came to an end, I was very lucky to be offered a position at Engage.

Why I got Engaged

I was looking for an administration position within recruitment that would allow to me to continue my youth work part-time - when I came across the advert for the position at Engage I was immediately interested. The company was new and fresh, and it seemed an exciting opportunity to be a part of the fundamental stages of an upcoming business. Upon meeting with Anne-Marie and Yvonne, I realised Engage as a company shared my personal values and would be a place where I could grow professionally in a nurturing environment.

What Engages Me

I have a huge family and a close network of friends who I love spending time with and having a good laugh. Working with the young people in my groups and helping to make a difference in their lives gives me a huge sense of self-worth and developing fun, trusting relationships brings lots of laughs. I like to go to gigs & festivals during summer as well as squeezing in as many breaks as my bank balance can handle!
