It’s a pick n mix.  I have built positive working relationships with colleagues and SLT at site level and across the organisation.  I feel valued and respected.  I am supported by the HR Team at Head Office which has helped me to grow professionally and personally.  I have learned so much since joining and am given the opportunities to develop my existing skills and knowledge.  I would not hesitate in recommending ILG as an employer to a friend.” HR Team Member

“I love the passion that Amit has about providing high quality education for children, his speeches are inspirational and are a reminder that I am in the right company. Its invigorating that I am given autonomy to manage the nursery in my own way but also helpful that I have the support of Head office to support me with the day to day running of the nursery. I also appreciate  that the vision of the nursery is in line with my own values and I am able to get resources and equipment to enhance the learning opportunities for the children.” Nursery Manager
