I’m now one month into my placement as a marketing graduate at LCMB as part of the EU funded Time2Grow programme which is designed to help businesses solve some of their most challenging problems by giving them access to a graduate workforce. Coming out of University I was always worried about what kind of role I would find myself doing, however this role has provided me with everything I hoped for. The first month has been fascinating as I have had more responsibility than I had previously in past jobs, and I have always been keen to try to make a real impact.
I have always been a keen learner, therefore getting to experience a company that has such an interesting offering has been a pleasure. Under the guidance of John and the team I have been able to get to grips with understanding the complexities of improving building performance. The only thing that has been disagreeable about the team is that I found out a recent social event that everyone is better than me at mini golf!
I hope I can help LCMB continue to deliver great content and help provide our customers with what you need to obtain more productive and resource efficient workplaces! My advice to fellow graduates would be to research programmes such as Time2Grow and be sure to look at SME’s who can offer you just as good working environments and experience as larger organisations.
