Online Graduate Profile Ria Davey 25/06/2018  
Name: Ria Davey
pic: [/view.image?id=6024]

quote: [Trent was the best and happiest period of my life! It taught me the skills and knowledge to be the woman I am today and I am eternally grateful!]

Course: BA Hons Psychology and Social Sciences
Year: 2004
Job title: Regional HR BP EMEA/APAC
Employer: Bloomberg LP

Career developments?
I started my career in recruitment after 1 year as the VP Education officer at NTSU. After 2 years in London, I relocated to Dubai where I have been based for almost 11 years. In 2016, I spent 8 months living and working in Hong Kong and have since travelled the world with my current role.

Challenges?
So many! From leaving my comfort zone to London, to Dubai, to travelling alone in Africa. I have messed up as humans do, but I have also excelled! The challenges are actually lessons and blessings as this is where you learn and grow.

Your NTU experience?
I was from a very small town prior to university so for me, the experience was a real eye opener. The friends you meet are friends for life and from all walks of life which exposes you to vast cultures, opinions and experiences. This is all character building and gives you so much depth as a person and a professional.

Advice for others?
Be present, enjoy every minute, work hard and play hard but don't lose sight of the bigger picture.

How friendly and supportive an environment did you find Nottingham Trent?
Trent was the best and happiest period of my life! It taught me the skills and knowledge to be the woman I am today and I am eternally grateful!

Career highlights?
So many highlights but for me what stands out is delivering key note speeches on a range of relevant topics such as diversity and inclusion to other senior professionals in the industry. I am also always proud and honoured to see how my management helps and develops others and the wonderful things they go on to achieve.

Where have you taken your advice and inspiration from?
So many people! My mum is my biggest role model, and along the way people you meet inspire you in some form or another. I believe everyone has a lesson and I constantly seek out what I can learn from everyone I meet.

Plans for the future?
I strive to learn more, be a senior director and potentially relocate to NYC.
