Meet the team.....Nicole Burke

Updated: Feb 4

Last year we welcomed Nicole Burke to Utility Source following our engagement in the government Kickstart Scheme and after a successful six month placement, Nicole joined the team on a permanent basis.

The Kickstart Scheme was introduced to provide funding to create new jobs for 16-24 year olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long term unemployment. At the time of Nicole's employment we were in the midst of a global pandemic and not the perfect time for a university graduate to be looking for work.

Our agent for the facilitation of the Kickstart recruitment was Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber who we thank for their support.

Nicole joined the team as a Utilities Administrator offering enthusiasm and energy and she quickly become an important member of the team. Following the six month placement we had no hesitation in making the role permanent which has no doubt contributed to our recent success. Nicole's role includes liaison with contractors, network applications and and project planning amongst other administrative duties.

Nicole is a graduate of Sheffield Hallam University where she achieved a degree in Criminology and Psychology and she offers us a fresh view on our utilities activity. We are very pleased to work alongside her and hope to have a positive impact on her development as she helps our business to grow.
