What did you study and what do you do now?
I studied BA Geography with Transport Studies. Currently, I am the Data and Insight Coordinator at LUU.
As a recent graduate, how is working at LUU helping to kickstart your career?
Working at the union has been a nice transition from student life (which can be very unstructured) to working life and getting used to the everyday 9-5. It’s also given me experience in meeting deadlines, team working and networking.
In my role, I am responsible for all of LUU’s research needs, so it’s nice to have been given such a big responsibility so early on in my career.
What skills, experiences and development opportunities have you had that will be useful going forward?
I’ve learnt a lot about different data collection methods such as surveys and focus groups, and the channels available in LUU to reach different stakeholders. I’ve been able to use new data reporting tools and learn how best to display data.
I’ll also soon be responsible for managing an Insight Assistant so this will help develop leadership skills moving forward.
