  • After you qualified, did it take long to find a job?

 I first applied for this job in April 2022, while I was still completing my final assignments for university. I then had my interviews in June and was offered the job later in June 2022 - a month before my graduation!

  • What’s the best thing about your job?   

The graduate scheme allows me to work with people from all functions of the business, which has been great for getting to know colleagues and making friends at work who have helped me find my feet during my first few months in the company. I have also been able to find out about careers I never knew existed and discover which role would best suit my personality!

  • What was your starting salary?
  • How long have you been doing your job?
    Since September 2022
  • Did you buy something special with your first pay cheque?
    I put it towards a new car.
