Name: Agnieszka Dziadziak
Role: HR Business Partner

“The design of the graduate scheme at Tata Steel was interesting, especially that as a graduate you got to do placements in different business units. This way you meet various people and learn a great deal about the company in a relatively short spell of time. The highlight of my career has been the appointment into the HR Business Partner’s role. This is a challenging role involving a high degree of decision-making, self-motivation, and the ability to build relationships and cope well under pressure. I have enjoyed every minute of it. It has built my confidence and given me many opportunities to stretch myself.”
