"Trinity originally employed me as an Operations Coordinator in 2007, where I spent 3 years working with our network of examiners and teams across Italy and South America. I threw my hat in the ring when the role of Business Development Manager for Drama & Language became available - a big step up, but one I thought I could manage. I was pleasantly surprised to be offered an interview, and amazed when they offered me the job. I remain incredibly grateful that I was given a chance to prove myself!"
Andrew Harrison, Business Development Manager - Drama & Language
"I have worked at Trinity for 6 years and held a number of roles during that time, allowing me to gain valuable experience and learn new skills. Trinity has helped my progression by offering management support, internal and external training programmes and encouraging me to develop by working in new areas of the business. In my current role, I was the lead implementer on a project that recently saw Trinity gain ISO 27001 certification for one of our business systems and am now looking forward to the next challenge."
