This week meet Sam Eden, he is our Operations Placement student who started with Xtrac in August.
Name: Sam Eden
University: University of Brighton
Course: Business Management
Why I decided on a placement year: I’ve always wanted to do a placement year as I think the experience that can be gained from them is invaluable and can be extremely useful when finding a job after finishing university.
Why I chose Xtrac: When searching for a placement year I wanted to find a company that was involved in manufacturing which also had the resources and experience to offer a good placement program. With Xtrac being the market leader in the motor sport transmission industry which is going through the process of expanding its facilities; it stood out as a great opportunity for a placement year.
What I aim to get out of the year: I want gain a greater understanding of how companies operate in manufacturing industries as I’ve never had the opportunity to do so. Hopefully, learning in-depth about the chain of operations that are necessary in creating a finished product.
If you would like to have the same great experiences as Sam head to our website to apply.
The closing date for applications is the 5th November so please don't put off applying.
