What motivated you to join Goodwood and how has your training helped shape your career aspirations?

The Goodwood website was an initial attraction as I found it informative and engaging, it highlighted how I could create a career for myself here. The course has realised my career aspirations, as I can progress within the department.

What do you enjoy most about working at Goodwood?

I love the team I work in, everyone is so passionate, supportive and kind that it makes coming to work everyday a joy. I also love “One Goodwood” and the fact that everyone is so friendly, across the whole Goodwood Estate.

What have been some of the highlights of your time in your role and your training?

I have been able to get involved in some fantastic projects which before I didn’t think I would be able to do. Part of the apprenticeship was for me to build up a number of hours doing tasks that are not necessarily part of my day job which means I’ve proactively been able to gain broader experience of working in HR such as recruitment and exit interviews. These are now tasks that I’ve built into my day to day role and my confidence has grown hugely as I’ve had more exposure to these things. I have also been able to get involved in some fantastic projects since joining Goodwood including revamping internal processes and collateral.

Looking ahead, what are your career goals and how do you see your experience at Goodwood shaping your future in the industry?

I would love to take the next step in my HR career and feel that I will be in a good place to put myself forward for opportunities when they come up as I’ve already been able to grow my experience and knowledge in the relatively short time that I’ve been here.

In what ways do you feel supported and mentored by your team and Goodwood team? How has this support contributed to your professional development?

I am incredibly lucky with my team as everyone is supportive and helpful. Everyone chips in and helps each other, which also means that you are constantly learning from each other.
