My name is Bevan Gosling and I am currently one of two HR Interns at RCI. I study History and Politics at Loughborough University and wanted to undertake a placement year to gain experience within a business whilst also applying the skills I have learnt at university.

As an employee at RCI I immediately felt a part of the team and settled in very quickly to my new role. The benefits of having such a well organised placement scheme meant interns get a full induction to the company, gaining valuable knowledge about the car industry and financial services whilst also getting to know the other interns.

Within HR our roles are varied and we get the opportunity to interact with every aspect of the business as well as being involved in important projects. We have just finished organising the Graduate Assessment Centres which was a great opportunity to see candidates through from application to interview stage, with them eventually joining the business in October 2017.

I would strongly recommend applying to RCI due to the positive atmosphere within the company, along with the trust they place in Interns during their time here. This gives you the chance to develop into an important member of the team and gain important experience before leaving university.
