Annabel here:

I am a student at the University of Edinburgh studying Business and Accounting. I was fortunate to spend my third year studying on exchange at the University of Melbourne. I arrived home at the end of June and was very grateful to have been offered a summer position at the Chefs In Scotland Office before I start my fourth year in September. I grew up in Moffat, where CIS is based, and so working here allows me to live at home, see my family as well as earn some money - a necessity for any student!

Whilst on my summer placement I have worked on chef recruitment, answering phones, emails, and sending out invoices as well as working on projects set out by Michael. These projects include the brewery, the Moffat Golf Club and helping sort out the Financial Year End. Learning in a real business environment is very different from learning at University, no text books involved and no assignments!
