Most memorable moment at University:

Interviewing Fred Bowers (google him) on the radio just after he got kicked out of Britains got Talent, an Interesting one!

Why I chose Sims Graduate trainee management scheme

Multinational, well reputed company with good prospects/Variety of the scheme/not your average day job/meeting loads of people from all sorts of backgrounds.

My experience so far

The selection process is one of many stages. . . culminating in a two day assessment centre – challenging but enjoyable. Having been with the company for only a few months I have been concentrating on learning all the processes associated with the operational side of the business. This means lots of time on the ground getting my hands dirty! All sorts not only work for the company, but also come through the doors too. . . you never know what you are going to get next, which can be pretty entertaining.

Most memorable moment of the scheme

Working a night shift at the docks loading a ship in amongst freezing winds and the odd bit of rain. Character building.

Advice to other graduates

It’s all about safety! Don’t be afraid of early starts, let your voice be heard and be prepared to be flexible!
