‘I have been with the Royal Automobile Club for five years, having started as a Receptionist in 2011. The working atmosphere was always great and I liked my team and my job. The Club then provided me with an opportunity to progress my career within the department and I was promoted to Supervisor at the beginning of 2015.
Over the years I changed my mind about what I wanted to do in the future and was considering studying HR at masters level. The Club provided an amazing opportunity for me to apply for the Sue Brownson Scholarship Award and I was successful, meaning I was granted a fee towards my university tuition. I started my studies in 2015 and I have been studying since.
By a lucky turn of events I saw an internal advertisement for an Admin vacancy within the HR Team in October 2015. Due to my studies in HR my application was accepted and I have since been working within the HR Team. I consider myself really lucky and I realise that without the club’s help my career shift would not have gone so smoothly. I have always been happy working with the Club, and I believe it has a magical power in supporting career development.’
