As a Placement Advisor (Employer Engagement), I am responsible for contacting and collaborating with external organisations in order to identify work placement opportunities for undergraduate students within Cardiff School of Management.  I also support our students in relation to sourcing, confirming and monitoring their industrial internships.  Prior to this post, I worked as an Employability and Progressions Advisor, representing business, IT, AAT and finance students within Further Education at Cardiff and Vale College.  Before this, I worked as a Service Advisor and After-Sales Manager with the automotive industry across various major brands.  I graduated from the University of Abertay, Dundee with a BA (Hons) in Business with Marketing degree and I plan to start an Executive MBA programme in the autumn of 2018 at Cardiff School of Management.
