Steph was welcomed back to GlamCandy with open arms and resumed her position as Admissions Manager.
What does a typical week at GlamCandy look like for you?
I spend most of my week speaking with current or potential students, I call any enquiries to discuss the courses in more detail and help to advise on the best course for them.
I help the students with any queries or concerns they may have, and also support them with their funding applications. It is my job to ensure our students are set up for starting their courses and be there for their induction day.
What is your favourite thing about your job?
It’s hard to choose one thing! I love calling potential students, getting to know them and helping to choose the best courses for them. I will be in contact with them a lot in the months leading up to the course so it’s nice when I get to meet them and see them progress over their time at GlamCandy.
I absolutely love the team at GlamCandy, I can genuinely say I look forward to coming into work every day. I get to bring my pup Hugo to the office and he gets seriously spoiled by everyone here!
Who inspires you?
My mum, Sheila. I know everyone thinks they have the best mum in the world but I really do! She works so hard with her own business but always puts everyone before herself.
What is your must-have product?
Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter. It’s amazing for keeping my skin natural but giving it a healthy glow!
