Business Management at Queen’s University Belfast.
Why did you apply for Dale Farm?
I applied for the HR Placement at Dale Farm as I wanted to work for a local company that has an active presence in the community. What a company does externally tends to also reveal how they work internally. I knew Dale Farm valued its employees and therefore would provide the best environment for me to get the most out of my placement year.
What have you enjoyed about working for Dale Farm?
Dale Farm has an open culture of collaboration, where employees become interested in new ideas or suggestions in the knowledge that everyone is working towards a common goal. Ideas are taken on board, irrespective of level or status in the company which has pushed me to be creative and step out of my comfort zone. I enjoyed working in HR as I was given responsibility to take on several projects – I was treated as a valued member of the team from day one.
