What employees say

"Starting a new job is always a bit scary and can easily be overwhelming. Starting a new job during a pandemic whilst working from home and never meeting anyone face to face should have been worse, but my first week at Chesterfield College was actually easy. My colleagues and line managers have made me feel very welcome. All of the arrangements to facilitate working from home have been made and I am settling into my job very well. 

"I really appreciate the flexible working options and look forward to enjoy the benefits offered to staff members of the college."
