I would like to say a BIG thank you to The Hive! You have opened our eyes to many of our students who have shone through with their abilities within my nursing home. Thank you for both my kitchen and laundry staff. Who have now been employed by ourselves, we could not have asked for more committed staff.
To come in each day for shift, with a SMILE and to see how many two youngsters have grown and are very much part of our FAMILY is amazing.
I cannot say enough words in one letter to thank you for giving us the opportunities you have in regards to meeting a dynamic group of pupils all with different abilities and all who actually just want a chance to show others what they can do.
The support we get from the staff is amazing even after we have employed the youngsters so thank you, your team is a credit to you!
I fully recommend The Hive to all I see and will do for many years to come. Please take the below into considerations, like me see the abilities these youngsters have.

Mehar helped myself in particular for two days inputting course participant data into pdf certificates: this was by means a simple task but Mehar completed it accurately and effectively.
Although I was not able to attend the office during Mehar’s placement I spoke to her on the phone and via Skype videoconferencing. Mehar came across as a friendly, confident and articulate person and she was an absolute pleasure to work with. I hope she has a great time at Butlins in a few weeks and enjoys her future career.

I just wanted to express how delightful it has been to have Daniel with us over the last few months.
He has such a pleasant nature and is always eager to please. He has grown in confidence to the extent that he is happy to work unsupervised now but will ask if he needs any help.
Nothing is to much trouble and he makes an awesome cuppa!
He interacts with the rest of the staff really well and is a credit to The Hive and all that you do there.

I would like to recommend that any business considers working with Julie & The Hive to engage with their students.
One of my clients has recently taken on a student – intially as a work placement one day a week, she is now on a supported internship and all being well in June she will become an employee. They not only have found Annie to be a great worker and ambassador for The Hive, but also found dealing with Julie and Annie’s job coach so simple and easy. Their comment was “I feel we should be doing more – paperwork, support etc.” The reality is that Julie and team do all the work, so the business just experiences a great worker.

Over the past few months, it has been a pleasure to offer work placements to your students.
They are hardworking & conscientious and have the support worker who helps develop their skills and independence.
