Natalia Miteva, a current Communication, Media and Culture student at Oxford Brookes University prepares to head back to her final year of study after completing a work placement with motor giant BMW Group UK.
The year long placement held at their head office in Farnborough, UK has seen Natalia take on the role of an assistant in the Aftersales Department. Natalia landed this role after realising two years into her studies that she was keen to put her knowledge into practice and gain exposure to the job market ahead of graduating.
“Since starting on my placement I have been involved in many different projects and events and the increase in my responsibilities over time has proven very rewarding.”
NATALIA MITEVA, COMMUNICATION, MEDIA AND CULTURE STUDENT, OXFORD BROOKES UNIVERSITY
“My role is based around marketing and promotion; on a daily basis I support the team with launches of new products and the maintenance of existing ones, and pilot initiatives on a national level. I’ve also had the chance to apply and test many of my academic skills learnt during my course, including market research and competitor analysis around customer behaviour and trends.”
Natalia’s work on placement has also involved writing an Independent Case Study; the inspiration for which was based upon the recent launch of BMW’s employee brand.
