Beth Tyson, Loughborough Graduate and ComputaCenter employee

Computacenter was a natural choice for me after graduating and it’s the culture of Computacenter that was the key selling point. It is competitive, exciting and challenging which is the same way I would describe my Loughborough experience. The skills I learnt from being on the AU Lacrosse team, Hall Committee and from my degree itself have been really transferable into my role. If you are thinking about applying, my advice would be do it! The associate programme provides a supportive springboard into the world of IT sales and I am really looking forward to seeing where my career goes with CC.
