Careers Stories

Michael was a Primary Process Engineer for GlaxoSmithKline

"On placement you are learning practically and learn a lot of stuff that you don't get at Uni... Being at work daily has given me a work routine and pattern."

Scott is a Procurement Manager for Unilever

"The placement experience gave me such a head start when I got into the work place. It's a year you can make mistakes, learn and develop, so when you come into a full time role, you have the experience."
