What is a typical day at Blackjack like?
No day is the same whether on the shop floor or in the Head Office, with numbers of staff, clients and brand trainings coming through the door. Recruiting a diversity of talent that involves a number of stages to building a rapport with those joining the team by booking and training them to set them up to succeed in their role.
