“Saxon has been an absolute delight to work with, she is bright, personable and positive. Her contribution to the project has been impressive – in a few short months she has familiarised herself with the business and found meaningful ways to contribute. Saxon has carried out research, produced draft documents, liaised with stakeholders and solved problems quickly. She has been a key member of the team and were she not continuing her studies in September we would be seeking to recruit her on a full-time basis.” – Line Manager, Transition Tradition Ltd
