My 13 months working at Renault UK was the highlight of my degree. Ever since I studied psychology at A level, I’ve wanted to research consumer behaviour and this placement gave me the chance to take on a market research role.

In the autumn, I’m starting work for a market research company in London and I’m sure my experience with Renault helped me get the job. My ambition is to work abroad.

It was a challenging time with lots of responsibility but it was very rewarding, especially as I was able to work on several high level projects including electric vehicles.

I also got involved with the University’s Entrepreneurship society Fish on Toast to understand more about how business works and became a member of Enactus, an international non-profit organisation where students improve the world through enterprising projects. That inspired me to travel and do some volunteer teaching in Cambodia.
