Accounting, banking & finance
If there is one thing I have learn't in my career it is if you want to follow a passion and try something new then do it.
I used to always follow paths that other people assumed I wanted to go down and taking the opportunity for change and to work for a company I am truly passionate about has inspired me to always challenge and believe in myself and give 100% every day.
Give something different a go and you'll be amazed what you might stumble across.
Business Studies, English Language, English Literature, History, Mathematics, Dance , Photography
I loved Business Studies and Mathematics but always wanted to keep my time at school different. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to do subjects at school which weren't the 'standard', this mean't alongside my passion for Mathematics and Business Studies I also did Photography, Dance, and Sign Language.
I disliked however exam based some subjects were, I deal with pressure much better for coursework and mixed exam / coursework based courses.
