Please give a brief description of your job and what it involves

As a procurement Intern, my general tasks are to aid in the sourcing strategy of raw and pack materials, support all aspects of the supply chain, and manage supplier relationships.

What key advice would you give to current students who would like to get into a similar job to you?

My advice would be to make sure you never shy away from learning. Work is a learning curve and everyone is trying to improve everyday. Don′t shy away from responsibility and never be afraid to ask questions!

Why do you think you got this job e.g. what skills/knowledge/experience etc.

I believe I was able to show that I was proactive and communicative. Academics are only a benchmark, people person skills and a passion to try and succeed are far more important.
