Denneil  is a Front of House Retail Assistant, with one of London’s prestigious theatres. Here he shares his account of the support he received from Hexagon.

“Prior to graduating from the BRIT School I was hoping to gain full time employment with a London based theatre so that I may procure a steady income as well as being surrounded by a theatre environment. During this time I had already made a CV but thought it was rather unsuitable for applying to any reputable theatres.

My mother brought me into contact with Hexagon which I thought would help me in improving my CV however, the service I received went above and beyond just that. Lionne has been pivotal in helping me gain employment. Not only did she help me make the necessary changes needed in my CV; she also was the one responsible for accumulating a large list of theatres all over London for me to send my application to, a task which I would have definitely struggled with. She also assisted me with my cover letter, correcting any mistakes and making minor adjustments which improved the quality of the letter greatly.

Another aspect of the job searching process I would have struggled on was interviews. As this was my first job, it was also my first job interview. Fortunately I had Lionne to assist me once again. She booked a meeting for us to solely concentrate on interview techniques which I found infinitely useful as it was really in-depth and I felt like I had learned so much in such a short amount of time. At the end we had a stage interview of which she tested me on the things I had learned. I thought this was really helpful as it allowed the knowledge I had gained to be retained in my memory. Overall, I am thoroughly impressed with the service I received as it was much more than I had previously expected.”
