A business graduate from the University of Worcester has been presented with a top prize for her work in human resources.
Charlotte Walker, who graduated last year with a 2:1 BA (Hons) Business, Management and Human Resource Management (HRM), was awarded the EEF Prize for the best HR student.
Twenty-one-year-old Charlotte, from Redditch, who is currently taking an MSc in Management and Human Resources, said: “I was very pleased when I found out that I had won the award, especially as Human Resources has always been an area that I have enjoyed learning about and a career I would like to progress into. Once I have finished my MSc course I aim to get my CIPD qualification.”
The award was presented by Richard Halstead, Midlands Regional Director for EEF, ‘the manufacturers’ organisation’, which represents 6,000 employers across the UK.
“We are delighted to once again support the University of Worcester in its activities to ensure the best HR and IR [Industrial Relations] training is provided to future practitioners,” he said.
The award is given by staff nomination for the best grade performance across two final year (Level 6) HRM specialist modules and HRM-specific Independent Study.
Charlotte received £100 in vouchers and a day at EEF.
