About this video

Paul Philpott is President and CEO of Kia UK, the 8th biggest car brand in the UK. He explains that he recruits for many different roles in finance, HR sales, marketing and aftersales and says that there is a career for everyone in his organisation. He says it's extremely important to have aspiration and ambition, spot opportunities and aim high.

He shares that he walked the Pennine Way as a teenager to challenge himself, and he encourages youngsters to develop aspiration now, by reading about successful people and how they had goals and overcame challenges, and suggests they get involved with projects to stretch themselves and prove they can achieve their goals.
