A warm welcome to Hayley Collins who joined us recently as our Community Coordinator in our Recruitment team. Hayley previously worked at MacIntyre No Limits as a Community Teaching Facilitator.
We asked Hayley a few questions so we can get to know her.
Why did you apply for a role as a MacIntyre Community Coordinator?
I wanted to be able to do more to help raise awareness of MacIntyre, what we do, and the values we hold. When I saw the job description for the role, I thought it sounded like the perfect opportunity to do this, whilst also being able to use the skills that I had gained through being a Community Teaching Facilitator and recruitment.
Tell us more about your recent experiences?
My most recent role was a Community Teaching Facilitator (CTF) in MacIntyre No Limits in Milton Keynes. This was my first role in a supporting environment and I was unsure whether it would be for me, however on my first day I knew it was where I wanted to be. Before joining MacIntyre, I worked in medical recruitment, and before that I completed a Psychology degree.
What are you looking forward to about your new role?
1. Being able to get those who draw on our support more involved in the recruitment process. I loved the hands-on aspect of being a CTF and I really don’t want to lose that in this role.
2. The new challenges that I am going to face and pushing myself out of my comfort zones.
3. Being able to get creative with recruitment!
What interesting facts would you like your local community to know about you?
I love keeping as active as possible, especially outdoors. I recently climbed Snowdon and raised money for Mind charity.
I also have a Personal Training qualification!
I have a 5 year-old son, Oliver, and a very fluffy dog, Milo.
Quality time includes dancing and singing (badly) in the kitchen.
Is there anything else you’d like to share?
Come and say hi! I love to talk and meet new people.
