She’s Top of the Class! Andréa Wins NTU Placement Student of the Year
Written by Anna Murphy, Communications Lead
Committed, highly capable, creative and calm under pressure: we’ve always known that Andréa Williams, our Marketing Officer, is brilliant but now she’s got the award to prove it!
Nottingham Trent University (NTU) named Andréa their Placement Student of the Year (SME) after she completed a year in our Nottingham head office.
Andréa said: “My placement year at Retail Assist was such a great experience and I’ve found what I learnt so valuable in helping to complete my final year of my degree. The team were brilliant at always sending opportunities my way which I’m really grateful for!”.
Last year, NTU had over 1,350 students completing a year in industry and the other winners included placements held at professional services firm Grant Thornton, Toyota and Unilever.
Alex Broxson, Head of Marketing, said: “From the interview process, Andréa stood out. She has gone from strength to strength, bringing new ideas to the role; she is enabling the marketing team to achieve more and develop improved lead generation for the company, as well as being a fantastic team player who is widely-regarded across the company, too. She is by far the best undergraduate placement we have seen in the business.”
Dan Smith, Chief Experience Officer, added: “Andréa quickly showed a firm understanding of our business, our clients and the complexity of retail. She has proved to be a well-respected member of the team, and a delight to work with.”
Andréa has continued to work part-time at Retail Assist whilst also completing her final year at university, studying for her final year in BA Marketing (Hons).
Well done, Andréa!
