I was drawn to working in Human Resources as it was a new challenge and it suits my skill set.
I’m currently finishing my second apprenticeship with Thales in Crawley. After successfully completing the Level 3 scheme, I’m now working and studying for the Level 5 CIPD qualification. My apprenticeship is a rotational programme, which has given me the opportunity to work across five different areas of HR.
My work is extremely varied so it’s helped me to understand which area I’d like to specialise in. I’m currently working in the Employee Relations team as an advisor. I love supporting employees through challenging situations, such as long term sickness. It’s very rewarding to feel that my work is making a tangible difference to people’s lives and careers.
