We wanted to take the opportunity to introduce you to Andrew Garfitt. Andy, 22, is one of our long standing Go-Getters, who continues to make us smile on shift with his quit wit and desire to impress, making working with Andy a pleasure.
Andy is currently in his third year at UCLan, where he is studying Computer Games Development, which is both a hobby and career for him.
In October 2017, Andy was diagnosed with depression and anxiety and times have been quite tough for him. In Andy’s own words ‘Today I am still picking up the pieces and I’ve got a long road to getting better but looking how far I’ve came over the past 4 months is so motivating. I’ve kept myself occupied through shifts at work and contacting old friends. But a couple of event managers have gone beyond their job to help me out and that overall what makes Get Staffed more than just a normal company.’
We are over the moon to hear such wonderful words from one of our Go-Getters, not only are we extremely proud of Andy who continues to work extremely hard for us, but we’re proud of our Event Managers who have helped him along the way.
Andy continued to tell us how ‘He loves that the staff look out for one another at Get Staffed, on top of the job they’ve given me all the support I’ve needed to get through the past 6 months. They also provide unique work with great experience and enjoyable shifts.’
Andy is working towards achieving a 2:1 in his degree and hopes to gain a full time position with Get Staffed UK once he completes university; whilst building a portfolio and skills to help him obtain a role as a software developer. We have every faith that Andy will get his 2:1 that he’s aiming for and hope he achieves everything that he sets out to do!
It’s clear to us, that all of our Go-Getters and Event Managers are a huge fan of Andy, who is a hard worker, determined to do well. Charlie Dearden, Event Manager, told us ‘It’s always great getting your event rota and seeing Andy’s name, you know you’re going to have a good shift and you’ve got a reliable and hardworking member on board. Viva la Garfitt.’ (We got blackmailed into writing Viva La Garfitt by Charlie).
Big thank you to Andy for all your hard work at Get Staffed UK, we’re so happy you enjoy working with us and that you’ve been able to develop your skills in communication and team working during your time with us!
