This is Beth Eeley’s story, Contracts Administrator at Mitie.
Beth needed a career change. One inspired by her passion for numbers but with the flexibility to work around her childcare duties. Through Mitie, she’s found the perfect fit in a part-time role as a contracts administrator for our client, an automotive manufacturer.
“I recently received £50 of vouchers as an Employee of the Month, but what I really valued was the recognition of the additional work I had put in.”
What’s your Mitie story?
“After I’d had my daughter, I was keen to find a role that would give me the flexibility I needed to work around nursery and childcare. I was also keen to work in an office environment where I could indulge my passion – numbers! My role at Mitie is very varied – no two days are the same, I get involved with a lot of finance work, payroll and quotes. I’ve learnt so much since I’ve been here.
“I work part time, four days a week. There’s a culture of flexibility and trust within my team. I know that if I need to take some time away – perhaps for childcare or if I have an emergency at home – my manager understands – as long as I make the time up and I get my job done, it’s no problem.”
What makes you proud to work for Mitie?
“It’s such a well-recognised brand – even my daughter, who’s three, recognises the logo and knows that its ‘mummy’s work’.”
How have you been recognised and rewarded for your work?
“I’ve received Mitie Stars in the past and was also recently Employee of the Month. I was rewarded with £50 worth of vouchers but what I really valued more was the recognition – a senior manager had put me forward for all of the additional work I had put in to ensure that our new payroll system was embedded effectively. That this was recognised made me feel that the role I perform here is important and valued.”
What advice would you give to others embarking on a career with Mitie?
“Look into the benefits and discounts available from day one. I wish I’d known about it earlier as I’d have saved so much!
“One of our supervisors recently bought a new house and he’s saved a fortune on furnishings and appliances by using the discount.”
Beth is just one of thousands of dedicated Mitie colleagues, each inspired and enabled to achieve their potential. By combining innovation with intelligence and applying the power of technology, we’re supporting our people to proudly make a difference, every single day.
