In my final year, the Head of Talent Management for European Region of BMW talked to my year group about BMW’s international graduate scheme.
After his visit, I spoke to him and explained about my decision to go to South Africa for a gap year. He was very supportive and I started my application process while I was away, doing my final interview on Skype.
Four weeks after returning home I started the graduate scheme with BMW Group. I worked at their UK headquarters and at the MINI production plant in Oxford. I also worked in their global Headquarters in Munich and at the National Sales Company in Beijing.
After completing the Graduate Scheme, I joined the HR Corporate Team for the European Region as an HR Specialist. My main focus is on HR Strategy and Compensation and Benefit. I support and consult with the HR managers across Europe and the Middle East.
I enjoy what I do as I am part of a very international team. I use all three of my languages on a daily basis and I get to travel. What more could an IMML graduate ask for?
