"I have a diagnosis of Autism and Dyspraxia. I am currently a student at University studying an Education Studies and Inclusion degree. I initially completed a three-week work placement with AIUK based remotely within the HR department reviewing unseen disabilities, diversity and inclusion within the company. They invited me back to complete a four month internship, gaining more in-depth experience across the different HR teams within Aggregate Industries.
I am also part of A.I.D.A, where we are reviewing the disability inclusive culture within the company. My diagnosis has given me challenges over the years, but I have had fantastic support here in order to overcome these barriers enabling me to develop coping strategies."
