I'm spending my placement year with Huddersfield Students’ Union and I'm having one of the best years of my life. I was immediately made to feel part of the community and that helped make my placement year as enjoyable as possible. Working for Huddersfield Students’ Union has taught me valuable skills that will increase my employability and benefit me going forward. It has also helped me improve my skills within an office environment. Increasing my teamwork, my people skills and my computer skills will all prove very important in the future.

This year's Student Engagement Assistant has this to say:

Hi, my name is Nurin Mushahar and I’m the Voice Placement Assistant at Huddersfield Students’ Union. Working at the Students’ Union has been a great experience. I am surrounded by supportive and empowering people, the working environment in the office is always fun and I have gained a lot more than what I expected. Being in this role is exciting because it’s more than just a desk job! I get to try everything from supporting the Inspiring Future Leaders programme, working closely with the Liberation Campaign Networks, input my creativity skills in projects, going on outreach and speaking to students, and so many other opportunities!

I’ve developed a number of skills whilst being on placement with HSU. I got the opportunity to join Microsoft Excel workshops, mental health training and public speaking/presentation training. I am very sure that without being with the HSU I would not be able to brush up on these skills. I’m always enthusiastic about what every day would bring because no two days are the same and I enjoy working at HSU, and you will too!
