      Pros

      The ELP clearly demonstrated the benefit of collaboration in business, sharing ideas, developing and building strong relationships. It certainly strengthened my network having worked with like minded partners over the programme. Created great opportunities to work together in the future.

      Cons

      There were certainly no disadvantages to taking part in the ELP.

      Good Job but not living up to expectations

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Friendly staff and good pay

      Cons

      The training that was advertised with the job never seemed to arrive and I was told this was because I was not ready. When asking for help the staff and managers were either too busy or do it themselves. I have also been told by management that they did not know how to help me and blamed the pandemic for it.
