The experience I gain from this job is valuable for my future

The company runs an 'Aquila School' every Friday, which lasts for one hour or sometimes more if the topic is larger. All employees Skype into a learning session, which is run by a different member each week. Not only does this help with their presentation and communication skills but it also helps with their internal networking and profile within the organisation by showing their area of expertise. They also run an Aquila Orators session, which is similar to Toastmasters International. They have a different Toastmaster each week. This is a fun but comfortable environment for more junior employees to improve their communication and presentation skills. Within the industry there is continuous learning due to new and advanced techniques and tools. Aquila like their employees to be at the front of this learning so encourage them to write blogs too. They also encourage employees to share their knowledge and experience with local Universities and schools, thereby helping people get into employment in the Industry. Furthermore Aquila also encourage and support employees as 'thought Leaders' to talk at industry events.

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

Aquila offer the flexibility to work from home and travel to other offices to work more closely with colleagues. Each year all employees get together in one of Aquila's locations. They also have international food days where different nationalities teach employees about their nationalities and bring in a selection of different food and drinks. They also have free fruit available in each office at all times. The office bike to work scheme is highly subscribed and well used and employees often arrange out of work biking events together, which shows how effective this scheme is. Aquila have a quiet room where employees can go and work in a quiet area so they can focus without interruption, as they understand that not everyone likes working in an open plan environment. They have multiple breakout areas with couches so teams' individuals can get together and meet. They also encourage off site meetings, for example popping to a cafe for a meeting and a change of scenery. Finally every office uses Sonos provided to listen to music, which employees find creates an effective stress free atmosphere.
