Settling in to work and using the equipment:

Once I had received my equipment Andrea (the Office Manager) and I set about installing all of this on to my laptop. Then a couple of days later the scripting man came in to work and made some changes to Jaws to enable to me successfully use the database. Also my trainer came in and enabled me to do my work to the best of my ability.

Work:

I have now been working at TrustCSR for just over 3 months. I have settled in well. I am able to do my work and use all of the systems that everyone else on my team uses.

Goldie is a well-loved member of the team. During the day she sleeps lots in her bed next to my desk, she plays with her bone and teddy, makes sure she gets lots of stroking and also has frequent toilet breaks. I am really pleased with the way that TrustCSR has been so accommodating of my needs, the way that they have believed in me and given me the job, the way that they are willing to do whatever is necessary to enable me to be a fully functioning member of the team and at the same time treat me just the same as any other employee.
