Completing the Higher National Diploma in Business played a vital part in Angela Holland getting a promotion at work.

What’s more, the business strategy she created as part of the course is now being used to help move the business forward.

Angela successfully secured the position of UK Key Account Liaison at Spaldings, where she had worked as a telesales operative for six years.

“I knew that in order to progress, it would be valuable to enhance my business knowledge and gain qualifications to recognise my skills. The HND in Business enabled me to complete the modules based on Spaldings – creating appropriate strategies and plans that could be adopted by the business.”

Roger Chase, Agricultural Sales Director at Spaldings, was incredibly impressed by Angela’s work and the impact it is having on the company’s Key Accounts:

“We are committed to developing talent within our business and Angela is a fantastic example of how investment in training can be of great benefit to a company. Elements of the strategic projects Angela has undertaken have been instrumental in driving the changing focus of the Key Accounts Department and in turn continuing to move the business forward.”

“Angela’s transition into the new role has been seamless. She’s brought her ideas, honed skills and knowledge into the Key Accounts team and it’s fantastic to see them bounce ideas off one another and their genuine passion for growing the business.”

So, how did Angela find returning to education and balancing work?

“Having left school straight after my GCSEs, I was a little apprehensive about going back into education, however it has been brilliant. Fitting the course around work was manageable – infact I found I was able to work smarter during work hours to ensure I achieved what I needed to,” says Angela.

“Completing my qualification definitely gave me the confidence to be able to do this role and I’m looking forward to Graduation Day to celebrate the achievements with my friends and family.”
