I am over-the-moon excited to share that I have been offered a permanent position and I start on Monday 18 January 2016!!! My excitement is tinged with a sad feeling though, because this means I will not be working along with “My OBR Ladies” any longer… It’s hard to find words to express how deeply grateful I am for everything you have done in the last nearly three years... your constant efforts to get me work - keeping me in mind for assignments, encouraging, supporting and believing in me, advising on the best course of action when I’ve faced business issues I wasn’t sure how to handle, for the care and concern shown when I’ve faced difficult times in my personal life and most importantly – because this is what has meant the most to me – for genuinely caring about me as a person and not “just a temp on your books.” It is these qualities that set OBR above every other agency, you don’t just provide a service, you take a genuine interest. It has been a great privilege and honour to represent OBR and to work along with you. I sincerely wish each of you every success, happiness and Blessings for the future. Michelle Walmsley
