Name: Jonathan Burnett
Enactus University: Nottingham Trent
Current Role: BTM Placement
I joined the Enactus Society to differentiate myself from the expanding list of graduates and degree students, with a focus on developing certain skills and becoming a well-rounded professional.
My Enactus highlight was working with likeminded students and professionals who are passionate about change, specifically supporting and volunteering with a local project that uses vertical farming to address a critical local need. Throughout gaining real life experience which can be highly transferable.
The clear structure of the Corporate Relations Executive (CRE) programme allowed me to maximise the time I spent as CRE and the support from Enactus UK has been highly beneficial. Personally I have been able to develop my weaker skills to a competent level and take these forward in the application processes.
I am now at Unilever on a 12-month placement within Business and Technology Management (BTM), based will at the global R&D hub at Port Sunlight/Liverpool.
