People Graduate

I graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2018 with a degree in Business Management with a year in industry. I knew from my second year at University that I wanted to continue with HR, and especially after my Industrial Placement year. I applied for numerous HR Graduate Schemes. When I went to the Ocado Assessment Day, I came away having really enjoyed the day and loved the friendly culture.

Since joining the HR Graduate Scheme at Ocado Group, my HR knowledge has been broadened and I have learnt so much about the way that Ocado’s HR team support the wider business. I have spent time in numerous teams, including the Administration team, the Technology Division’s HR Team, as well as employing the new intake of Graduates for 2019.I have also got to know the Learning and Development team, as well as working on employee relations with the delivery drivers. I have both expanded my HR knowledge and broadened by network of colleagues. I have worked with all levels of senior managers across the business and I have taken part in lots of different grad events and training programmes.
