Since joining, Dawn has been on a MOD-wide ten-pin bowling weekend and takes part in lunchtime meditation sessions held at Abbey Wood.
Why did you choose to pursue a career in DE&S?
DE&S is a well-respected employer with a good reputation amongst local people I know who already work in the organisation. I had heard about benefits such as flexible working and good opportunities for training and development. I was returning to working full-time after my children have grown up and was looking forward to taking on new challenges with an employer that offered a wide variety of potential opportunities.
What do you most enjoy about your job?
I enjoy a job that provides plenty of variety and relish a challenge, which a customer-facing role such as this offers. I have really enjoyed the opportunity to become a line manager for the first time, and would like to develop these skills further in the future. I am part of a team that strives for excellence and is very supportive, which is so important to the enjoyment of my job.
What’s your ambition?
I’m motivated by learning new things and knowing that I can fulfil tasks to a high standard, so I would like to keeping doing this and progressing to a higher level within the organisation. I’m also keen to explore and understand some of the opportunities which may be available to me within the wider business as a result of transformation and the move towards a matrix-managed organisation.
