- Both the ability to be resilient and to persevere - That I am in fact more confident than I originally thought - That this year alone has proven my ability to adapt to my surroundings - Effective team working skills - How to communicate effectively - How to organize my time efficiently. - The importance of having a diverse and inclusive culture
I was given a lot of responsibility. However I was never left alone and the team were always supportive when I needed it!

The company atmosphere is great. A strong focus on creating and maintaining a Diverse and Inclusive culture.
