Gemma Peet - Head Office and Social Media Administrator

Gemma joined Wise Employment in November 2007 to carry out a Temporary assignment at the Head Office in the Accounts Department.  We never let her get away!

Gemma became Permanent in 2008 and took the role of Payroll Administrator managing the payroll for several branches across the network.  Responsibilities increased and Gemma became involved with the training and mentoring of other colleagues. 

In 2013 a position became available to work with the branches carrying out the Administration function.  This role entailed the sending of branch letters, emails, preparing mailers, presentations and ordering of the stationary across the branch network to name but a few tasks!

Gemma says “ There’s never a dull moment and it’s encouraging to be able to apply for different roles within the Company.  We are a great Head Office team and all get on really well together….usually!!  You have to have a sense of humour working in recruitment, especially working with the branches!

We asked Gemma why she has worked for the Company for so long and Gemma said:

“No day is ever the same.  I really like the variety of responsibilities in my job and so there’s been no need to look elsewhere!"

What is the most challenging part of your role?

“Fitting everything in to a day!”

We asked Gemma what her funniest memory of working for Wise Employment was?

She said “Watching her colleagues on the bucking bronco at the last Christmas party!  Everyone was up for the challenge and there were some very memorable moments!”

Gemma is involved personally with a charity called “Swindon Talking News” who provide audio memory sticks of news and useful information for the blind and visually impaired.  Working voluntarily for the organisation, Gemma started as an Administrator and was then approached to join the committee as a Publicity and Fundraising LeaderGemma says “The skills that I have gained, working at Wise Employment have been utilised for my role with the charity -  Carrying out charity work has been really rewarding and a great way to further enhance my experience and my confidence.”
