Mafia Begum

  • Procurement Purchasing Engineer
  • Level 3 Accounting

Mafia studied Accountancy at Hopwood Hall between 2006 and 2008. After leaving Falinge Park High School, she wanted to study a finance subject and found that the college offered the best course for what she wanted to achieve in the future.

Every student on the Accountancy course got the opportunity for an interview at British Aerospace (BAE) after the company approached the college to fill several work experience roles. Mafia was one of six selected for a twelve month training contract as part of the Ambassadors Scheme when she completed her course at Hopwood Hall. This successful end to her studies was also rewarded when she won the Accountancy Student of the Year award for 2008.

After using the skills she gained at the college in her BAE training, Mafia was offered a permanent contract and now works as a Procurement Purchasing Engineer which involves working with Harrier aircraft.

Mafia says:

“I loved studying Accountancy at Hopwood Hall because everyone was really supportive, which helped me grow. The tutors were very encouraging and gave me a lot of motivation. It is a great achievement to be working for a blue chip company like BAE and if it wasn’t for the college and the course, I wouldn’t be working here now.”
