What A Level subjects did you Study? ~Biology, History, Religious Studies

What University did you study at ? Exeter University

What University programme did you study ? Exercise and Sports Sciences where I was awarded 1st class honours.

Did you follow a Graduate Scheme?Yes - Aldi Graduate programme  It's a gruelling 12 month programme learning how to run stores and manage people.  After the year of training, I took on the responsibility of three of my very own stores.  I managed 3 direct reports and almost 100 personnel reports.  I ran that area in South East Wales for 2 years before being 1 of 9 Area Managers in the U.K selected to establish a new project area manager role overseeing recruitment, training and development across the 64 stores within my Region.  During that time, I also oversaw the National Apprenticeship programme.  Following a 12 month secondment to that role, I have since returned to managing a 4 store area in the extended Cardiff area.   I have 4 direct reports and almost 120 personnel responsibilities.  I recently opened the new flagship store in Culverhouse Cross which was very exciting. No two days are the same in my role and I thoroughly enjoy my work.
