Here at Develop we have responsibility for placing Milton Keynes school students in work experience placements with local employers and Russell HR Consulting recently hosted a student of The Hazeley Academy as Administration Assistant. This gave the student an insight into Human Resources and their duties included preparing presentation packs, reviewing the website and updating links and researching items for Twitter. We very much appreciate Russell HR Consulting’s involvement in providing practical and relevant work experience for our future workforce and look forward to a continuing relationship.
