My time with MLCSU

I joined NHS Midlands and Lancashire CSU in 2018 as a Recruitment Assistant and expressed I would like to undertake a qualification to assist in furthering my career with MLCSU. A year later I started a level 5 apprenticeship qualification. I studied alongside working full-time and was supported by the organisation throughout.

Whilst studying I was recruited as a People Services Advisor and this helped me apply what I was learning to the role. I focused all my assignments on MLCSU, and this enabled me to put my learning into practice and get a better understanding of both MLCSU and the profession.

Next, I successfully applied for a promotion as a Talent Acquisition Resourcer, and then Talent Acquisition Manager, at the TalentOne Team where I again utilised my knowledge and  experience gained in previous roles in HR, my apprenticeship and qualification.

The opportunities for development at MLCSU are endless! I love working for the CSU, there are always ways to expand your knowledge, get involved in projects and continue your personal development.
