Hi, my name is Toni Durning. I’m 19 years old and I stay in Cumbernauld north Lanarkshire. Growing up for me wasn’t easy as at the age of five I was taken into care with my three brothers. Being in care has made me want to go out and make a change, whether that’s to someone’s life or just to give back to the public. I found out about this opportunity through Who Cares Scotland. I found the whole process very relaxing, the process was done in stages with support. The thing I found beneficial is we were given the questions before the interview, which took the pressure and stress off us.
When I found out I got the job I was over the moon as I didn’t expect it. Going into my Digital Marketing team everyone was so welcoming and very supportive. Now that I have settled in, I couldn’t have asked for a better team, they are very supportive and make sure I’m ok every day. I am excited to develop my career and hopefully go onto securing a job. NHS is a great organisation to be part of.
