I have recently completed a 12 month industrial placement within the HR function at Unilever– a Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) organisation.

I undertook a project based role where I got to lead projects across the spectrum of HR, from designing and delivering events for the attraction and selection of Unilever’s future graduates and placement students, to working with a local charity in delivering mock interviews to people with disabilities to enhance their interview skills and support them in gaining employment.
