“Coming out to work with TECS is one of the best things I could have done. I have truly developed as a person and seen a side to myself that I didn’t know I had.
Before I came out here I never thought I’d be confident enough to stand up in front of 90 people and do a dance. I´m achieving things I never thought I could; things that make me proud of myself and make me want to push myself even more to see what else I could do if I put my mind to it. A lot of that is down to the support and training I have received during my 6 months placement working here.
I really feel like a valued member of the team here. It isn’t every company that goes out of their way to make sure their staff are doing well. They have been there for is continuously and we are so grateful for that.
The Spanish classes that we have had are also incredible. There are so many opportunities for speaking and playing games in Spanish which are obviously invaluable for our Spanish and help us in our day to day lives here in Spain but they are also a couple of hours of fun that break up the office day for us!
TECS is the kind of company that feels like one big family and from the first day Jasmine, Jordan, Aoife and I felt welcomed. I have never felt so at home in a company that I was so new to. Every single person in the building was so friendly and kind to us, and that continued throughout our entire placement.
Living with the other girls has been such an amazing experience too. We moved out here barely knowing each other and now I´m happy to say that they are three of my best friends. This experience has been an unforgettable one and has for sure shaped the kind of person I am as I continue on the next step of my university journey.
