What is an area that you have needed assistance:
If ever I needed assistance, the Graduate Network meetings were a chance where I could ask any questions in an informal environment, and answers would be happily provided. It also assisted with the important things in life, such as where the best coffee can be found and where's easiest to park!
What do you intend to do in the future?
Continue to work in HR in a more senior position.
