The main reason I enjoy my job is that everything I am doing is a new experience to me. Before I joined I didn’t know what Procurement was and now I am starting to understand everything and the processes. I also enjoy the job because since I have joined my team I have been great in making me feel as part of the team and getting me involved.
The most challenging thing about the job is that at the moment I don’t fully know everything and how everything works. So when someone from within the business asks a question, I am not able to answer fully. Also, there is a lot of planning involved so everything has to be thought out.
Before this I was doing a HNC in Accounting at Fife College. I had completed this and applied to university and also applied to the Investment20/20 school leaver programme. I found this programme from a family member telling me to have a look as it may be an interest to me. After having a look I applied then went through the interview process and got an opportunity within SLA.
In the future I would like to maintain a job in the industry but also complete a degree whether it is while working or doing open university.
So far, the experience has been good and has helped me meet new people and learn new skills.
