Congratulations to Carlene who has just been promoted to Office Manager/Director’s PA at Bluestep!
Carlene started just 3 months ago when Ben was on the lookout for a personal assistant and office administrator. Thanks to Georgie’s recommendation, Carlene had an interview, got the job and has slotted into Bluestep so smoothly it feels like she’s always been here.
It’s been amazing to see her progress to a more senior role in such a short timeframe, but it’s not been easy! Carlene has brought so much to the Bluestep team in that time and we honestly don’t know where we’d be without her. She’s introduced the secret buddy system, the office recommendations box, BrightHR, and an abundance of organisation and structure to the office!
After popping some champers to celebrate, we sat with Carlene for a quick chat on her time at Bluestep so far:
It’s been a busy few months and you can really feel the difference in the office since you started. What’s been your favourite thing you’ve introduced to the company so far?
Some kind of organisation and hopefully some much-needed support for Ben Skinner.
What’s been the most memorable task you’ve worked on?
I have too many to count! This is what I love about Bluestep, the business is so varied I get involved in all sorts!
What have been your highlights in the role so far?
The Bluestep social events have been great fun, I enjoyed our afternoon tea party a bit too much! The people I work with are the main highlight, the team are amazing!
What makes Bluestep unique and keeps you wanting to work here?
The opportunity I have been given to grow and develop. The creativity and enthusiasm each individual holds, the variation of projects we do and how well everyone works together and supports each other. It’s never boring and very fast paced!
We love seeing our colleagues develop within their role, and it just goes to show that if you really put the effort in, you’ll see the rewards. We’re so happy for Carlene, it’s truly what she deserves and we can’t wait to see what she’ll bring to the Bluestep team in the future!
