Janvi graduated from Silverstone UTC in July 2017 having opted for our Business & Technical Events Management specialism, and is now employed by one of our supporting employers, Vauxhall Motors Limited.
“After spending 2 years at Silverstone UTC, I achieved D*D*D* in Business, Events Management and Travel & Tourism, alongside a B in AS Media Studies.
“My time at UTC was enjoyable, with various aspects allowing me to grow and develop transferable skills such as interpersonal skills, self-management and team working for the future. I was lucky enough to experience working at automotive events, to mentor young students and to become a key member of the student body. This would not have been possible without the support I received throughout my studies.
“Today, I work for Vauxhall Motors Ltd just outside of London. I work in the Digital Marketing team helping to answer customer questions through innovative tools and applications, creating seamless journeys from large marketing campaigns and ultimately helping to reaffirm to customers that Vauxhall is the right brand for them.
“I also support the Search Engine Management side of Digital, ensuring Vauxhall’s online visibility is maximised. With this role, after only 6 months I have learnt to project manage large webpage restructures, including statistics analysis, redesigning website elements and managing stakeholder expectations. This has given me huge opportunities to communicate across departments, allowing me to increase my knowledge on how the jigsaw pieces of a large corporation fit together.
“As well as having a full time job, I am studying BA Business and Management at the University of Hertfordshire. This is an amazing opportunity as after 4 years, not only will I have 4 years work experience, I will also have a degree and Chartered Management Status.
“I am lucky enough to have a full time job I enjoy thoroughly. Working with an amazing group of people and studying with 19 apprentices means I haven’t missed out on the social aspect that people associate with university study.”
Studying at Silverstone UTC taught me a lot which has truly supported me through my professional development and opened new doors for me, helping me to secure the position I am in today.
