I have completed just over 6 months of my Industrial Placement year at GlaxoSmithKline, in the Supply and Logistics team and have found the experience truly invaluable. The team have been very welcoming and helpful and I have incorporated into the team well. I have been given a variety of projects to complete that have allowed me to put my academic knowledge to use and to understand how Supply and Logistics is incorporated in the working world.
The level of responsibility that has been passed on to me is rewarding and I have been given the opportunity to work with Senior Management both on and off site. I would recommend doing a placement year, as the experience of using my academic knowledge and applying aspects from my Logistics degree has been challenging and overall, enjoyable. With the experience I’ve had in the workplace I now cannot wait to graduate and start working again.
