Each colleague plays a vital part in delivering our overall mission of creating opportunities and changing lives. In our mission to create meaningful employment opportunities, we invited Mia to complete a work placement in our Marketing and Communications team.

As a recent graduate, Mia had a keen interest in the world of Marketing and Communications, and joined us for a two-month internship so that she could grow and develop her skills.

Initially, her dedicated mentor met with her to understand her future career aspirations, allowing her placement to be tailored to her needs. With daily catch-ups, her mentor was able to track her progress and provide guidance to support the projects she was working on.

She was assigned a multitude of tasks, varying from social media marketing to internal communications, nurturing her development. Training was also provided on systems used frequently throughout the industry, such as Hootsuite, WordPress and Mailchimp, preparing her for her future.

“Supporting Mia during her two month internship was a pleasure. In such a short time, she has made an incredible impact through her creativity and dedication to learning new skills and building relationships.” Mentor, Marketing and Communications Lead.

With support from her mentor to create a CV, complete job applications and prepare for interviews, Mia went on to secure a full-time permanent role as Marketing and Communications Co-ordinator at a fellow Registered Provider of Social Housing. We wish her all the success as she takes the next steps in her career, and are proud to have been a part of her journey.

“I am incredibly grateful to The Sovini Group for allowing me to complete my work placement with the very talented Marketing and Communications team, who have been so lovely and welcoming. The amount of time, effort and encouragement my mentor has put into my work placement has been unmatched.

Over the past two months, I have learnt new skills and gained knowledge into different aspects of Marketing and Communications. My highlight has been the planning and creation of the Christmas campaign for One Vision Housing and it has been really rewarding to see the work that I have completed come to life.”Mia.

We are thrilled to be an organisation that creates opportunities and changes lives for our colleagues, both temporary and permanent.

Through Discover our Purpose, we’ll be sharing more colleague case studies, highlighting how their contribution counts as we strive for a better future.
