BSc (Hons) European Economy and Management, 2011/MSc Human Resource Management, 2014
As HR Coordinator at The James Hutton Institute, I deal with things like absences and performance issues and I’m also involved in HR projects, such as changes in terms and conditions.
I do payroll and I’m the first point of contact for any HR queries. It’s a varied job - no two days are the same.
I wouldn’t be in this job if it weren’t for my degree, I can definitely say that. I didn’t have any HR experience or HR knowledge in general to be fair!

The lecturers were all fantastic. The lectures themselves were just brilliant and we got a lot of hands on experience. HR people would come in and give us a taste of what they do. We might have recruitment one week and performance management another, and that was great.
I have great memories of Abertay. I also did my undergraduate degree there and I loved that too. When I did my postgraduate degree I felt as if I could go to my lecturers without any worries or fears. They were there to help and wanted you to do well.
Enjoy every minute of it. I know it’s hard to do that because it can be so frantic! Speak to the lecturers if you have a problem and don’t sit around worrying about it. They WILL be able to help, and that’s something they want to do.
The sky’s the limit! I want to reach the top.
