What do you enjoy most about working for Ardent?

I have only been with Ardent for a relatively short period, but it is the aims and key values which really stand out.  Everyone works hard to achieve successful outcomes across a variety of services for our clients.

Proudest achievement

Honestly, I am not too sure! There is still plenty that I would like to achieve over the coming years.  I think my most recent achievement with regards to my results at University stands out, so I will go with that!
