You might remember last year… Jobsite turned twenty! To celebrate two decades of connecting the UK’s best talent with the best jobs, we ran a multi-channel campaign culminating in giving three lucky candidates the chance to win a day in their dream job.
The first of these days took place this month – aspiring artist Sue from West Yorkshire won an exclusive day with Wiltshire painter Anthony Connolly.
Sue’s entry to the competition was particularly touching, as it was her dream to recreate in paint a portrait in memory of her late sister. With the help of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters we were able to connect her with Anthony, and she was able to spend the day learning the trade from a professional – and came away with the priceless portrait she’d always dreamed of.
Painting side by side with highly experienced and published author Anthony was an invaluable experience for Sue and she was overjoyed that together they were able to bring her sister Carol to life before their very eyes.
We’d like to thank the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, without whose expertise Sue’s dream job experience would not have been possible.
We still have two more dream job experiences to go, so stay tuned to find out what our other winners got up to.
