A picture of Libby's story

Libby studied Human Geography at Newcastle University.

My studies at university sparked an interest in the important link between housing and community. I wanted to pursue my career in this field and within an organisation with social objectives.

My placements in Supported Living, Maintenance and Reinvestment, Commercial and Care provided great variety, flagging strengths and gaps in my skillset, ticking off things I do and do not enjoy.

The Graduate scheme offers an excellent balance of support and new opportunities. A dedicated learning and development manager, and an established peer support system, encourages active growth and reflection for improvement. On the scheme, I was given the opportunity to study for the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants Certificate to extend my skillset.

I am thrilled to have secured a permanent position as a Project Analyst, in Sanctuary Care, where I will have the opportunity to contribute to a range of projects to ensure we deliver the best service to residents.
