Work Experience

I'm grateful for paid work experience that will help me towards GCSE’s and be given the opportunity to learn from everyone at Beanstalk.


When my old contract ended in a therapy-based organisation, I decided to take time off and retrain. As a single mum to children with additional needs, I could not meet the expectations of full-time work. As I had been out of the workforce while studying, I was no longer a desired employee either and had been volunteering to gain experience. Kerry had been watching my research and writing abilities and began to send me small jobs to do. Aware that I needed flexibility and patience, Kerry gradually built my confidence and encouraged me to try new projects. Each time, she gave me feedback in constructive ways, pushing me to believe in myself. Although I have started doing small tasks, Kerry has allowed me to be a part of the team, involving me in the company, and made me feel like a valuable team member. As Beanstalk grows, Kerry is not leaving me behind, and we have been discussing me becoming a permanent member of staff towards the end of the year. I am very grateful to Kerry for trusting me with the Beanstalk name and giving me a chance, despite the lack of paid experience and difficulties at home. If I could say one thing about Beanstalk - it gives people the opportunity to build on their skills and gain the confidence needed to create a better life and a hopeful future.

Work Experience

I have less anxiety about performing work tasks. Through my experience at Beanstalk, I have improved my skills, but I also recognise that there is still more to learn and prepare for full-time work. What I have enjoyed most about working in an office is the renewal and strengthening of my motivation, energy, and intention to continuously learn and develop my skills. It has been lovely to feel useful and appreciated and to get useful help. Thank you for the help and support I have received. I hope that Beanstalk can do the same for others, just as they have helped me.


After completing my work experience at Beanstalk, I am definitely more confident around a computer, and I am looking forward to a brighter future. I have had an amazing time working at Beanstalk. Really enjoyed my tasks and learning new things. This time with Beanstalk has definitely made me more confident working within an office environment.
