As part of our meet the merchandisers series, we’re speaking to merchandisers throughout Bluestones One to find out about their experiences, why they enjoy their job and what they do on a daily basis. This time we’re focussing on Kelsey Rawlings, one of our Supervisors.
When did you start working for Bluestones One?
How did you find out about the positions at Bluestones One?
I found the position on a job board. After reading good reviews about working at Bluestones One, I applied and was invited to an interview.
What do you enjoy about working for Bluestones One?
How every contract is different! You are always with different people and are able to get to know each other – there is also free time after work to go out, enjoy each others company and get to know your colleagues. Being able to see new places is also a great bonus too!
What do you do in a typical work day?
Get to the job, sign in and let the shop know why you are there and who you are. You will get given a job to do by the Team Leader and you can either work on your own or in a small team.
The work you do at the beginning of the week will always look a mess and unfinished but by the end, it looks great and it’s rewarding to see your hard work result in the finished product.
What opportunities have you been given since working for Bluestones One?
I’ve been able to see more of the country that I wouldn’t have been able to if I wasn’t working here. I’ve been given the chance to team lead certain jobs, all within the first 9 months of working for Bluestones which is great!
Would you recommend this job to your friends and family?
Yes. You get to travel the country, meet great people, make new friends, work on great contracts, can progress as much as you want to and you can have a good laugh while you work.
