Laura MacPherson, HR Essentials

Course Studied HR Essentials

Laura MacPherson wanted to develop her knowledge of HR so she could climb the career ladder at work. She decided to take the Pitman Training HR Essentials course to advance her knowledge of recruiting new staff, employment contracts, salary processing, maternity rights and staff performance appraisals. 

“I chose Pitman as my training provider because they have a great reputation for delivering amazing, cost-effective courses. I was also impressed that they offered such flexible courses. A big factor for me choosing a course was that I needed to fit it in around my hectic work schedule,” explained Laura. 

“My favourite thing about taking this course was that I could do it in bite-sized chunks at times that suited me. The actual course was straightforward, but on the rare occasions I needed help, the team was just an email away and more than happy to help me. 

“The HR Essentials course has helped me achieve a goal of better understanding the world of HR and has put me in a great position to get a promotion within my company. If you’re looking for an accessible way to learn, reach out to Pitman to see what they have available.”

Annika Barker, Virtual Assistant Diploma
Annika Barker had spent much of her career working as a bookkeeper for an accountant. Whilst she enjoyed this job, she wanted more variety in her job, so she underwent Pitman Training’s VA Diploma.

“I was desperate for a change in career. During a chat with a friend, they recommended I contact Pitman Training. I looked them up online and they had great reviews, so I thought it was worth a shot. When I chatted to the team at Pitman, they took the time to understand my ambitions and helped me find a course that suited my goals,” said Annika. 

“The whole learning experience with Pitman was fantastic. I found the course to be very well laid out and informative. I also loved having access to a learning coach as they were always happy to help whenever I had any questions.

“To anyone thinking about retraining, I recommend researching the role they want, to find out the skills they need and then get in touch with Pitman to help gain the skills and credibility needed to succeed. With this course’s help, I landed a virtual assistant job supporting an organisation that is helping the public sector in Wales to go digital.”
