My name is Daniel, I’m 24 years old and live in Stretford. I am on the supported Internship at Trafford Council. The supported internship is run in partnership with Trafford College and Pure Innovations and gives me the chance to try 3 different placements whilst studying.

I come into the Town Hall Monday to Thursday and attend my placement is in the morning and in the afternoon, I do classroom sessions to study an Employment Skills level 1 Qualification. On a Friday I travel to Trafford College in Altrincham to study for my functional skills qualifications.

My first placement is with the HR retained team. I spend two days with the Learning and Development team and two days with the recruitment team. I started doing my placement at the end of September and I finish my placement at Christmas.  

The people on the HR teams are fantastic and helpful. In my placement, I have been sending emails to different team members and council staff. I have been going out to different events and meetings, including visiting Hotel Football for a Leadership Summit where I sat on reception and signed people in.  I have also been filmed for a Health and Safety video for staff. 

I have been learning new skills such as using the printers for scanning and printing. I have a number of duties to help the team such as checking the post and ensuring everyone has signed the fire safety register each morning.

I am enjoying meeting new people and visiting different places. In the future I would like to work in IT as I enjoy working with different software and connecting different wires in the correct order.
