During my placement year I spent one year working in the HR Department of one of the biggest UK manufacturers, McVitie's. The atmosphere was busy and challenging, but that is what I liked about it! No day was the same and I was given responsibilities and opportunities to show my skills as well as develop new ones. I was given the opportunity to manage my own projects and present my findings to the HR Executive Team. My experience in working with people from different levels of the business had positive influence on my communication and interpersonal skills, teaching me to be proactive and show initiative. Some of the projects I was involved in included, working on audits, researching data, writing policies and training matrix. I worked on a project that was about eligibility to work in the UK and the government regulations as well as our auditors requirements. It was a long a complex project, it thought me to be very well organised, to present my ideas in a creative way and to be more confident.
