I love working in a profession that is still maturing and exploring different ways to make a difference. One of the benefits of my role is getting to speak to a range of HR leaders doing great work.

Excellent learning curve

As we deal with schools and they the recruitment of staff,the high level of policies that must be taken into account before doing or implenting them.it's a good company to work within them cause you are being exposed in the running m of government sector and how they running they pressure they go under when admitting student for the enrolment and the preparation of exam. You get to learn a lot within the organisation and the different functions they use in they system.

Pros: Openview to other department and procedures and it could open doors
Cons: Samething for more six month is not a good idea for interns
