Amy Nelson was a Business student at Sheppey College who completed her course in 2019. After College, Amy decided to go straight into employment and is now working as an Event Co-ordinator at Dobbies Garden Centre. We caught up with Amy and she gave us an insight into the industry:
"My hours vary, during event season, or whenever it gets busy, I do a lot more hours than usual (5 days per week). However, when it comes to administration work and preparing for the events, I typically work 3 days per week."
"My time at College definitely contributed to me gaining employment. When I got this job I just finished my course, and the employer was very interested in my qualifications. I have also gained. lot of knowledge from this course that I use in my role every day!"
If you were a student at Sheppey College, we'd love to hear from you. Please email Tia.Eskisan@eastkent.ac.uk to share your success.
