Jade Dudley National Account Manager “I would definitely recommend the graduate program to others. It’s a fantastic opportunity to really make a difference and provides opportunities to progress within the business.” “I joined the Yale Business Unit as an undergraduate in May 2012, working as a Sales and Marketing Assistant. Having completed my twelve month undergraduate placement, I returned to University to complete my final year in BA (Hons) Business Studies specialising in Entrepreneurship, Real World of Management, Globalisation and International Business Strategy. I returned to ASSA ABLOY on the EMEA Graduate Scheme. Working as a Territory Manager for the first part of the programme and then seconded to South Africa for three months. I worked as a business development manager, implementing strategic initiatives to drive incremental business within the ASSA ABLOY wholesale unit. The secondment to South Africa streamlined my career aspirations, cross culturally more dynamic and overall a more astute professional”. On returning to the UK Jade secured employment with Yale UK as a National Account Manager which led to her progressing to her current role.
