Undergraduate – Event Coordinator – Testimony

Since starting at Fusion, I have been given some incredible opportunities to gain hands-on industry experience. From my very first week, I was given the chance to get involved in a wide variety of projects. Ranging from Goodwood FOS, to helping organise a hospitality suite at the Formula E in London, as well as many others. I have been given the chance to take ownership of some small projects and develop relationships with other departments within the company as well as external contractors and suppliers. Within the company I have been able to become a member of the Charity & Social Committee, helping to promote company-wide fundraising activities. I have been able to grow in confidence since joining the team and gain valuable skills that will ultimately help me to establish my career in the future.
