Why they love the programme

Three of our previous graduates are now successfully working in roles within the business. Here’s what they have to say about their experience.

Josh Spiller, Service Delivery Manager, FSQS Community, UK

“The main reason for me applying for the programme was that I was not sure what area I wanted to go into in the future and it offered a wide range of roles which let you see which you preferred. I also wanted to join a smaller organisation to feel that the work I was doing was making a direct impact.”

James Wake, Service Delivery Manager, JOSCAR community, UK.

“During my time on the programme, I was able to attend numerous events relating to the Defence and Aerospace Industry, including the Farnborough Air Show. This let me better understand the industry that I was working within and see the outputs of my work through face-to-face interactions with buyer and supplier organisations.”

Daniel Wright, Service Delivery Manager, FSQS Community, Spain.

“The opportunity to spend 5 weeks working in the Madrid office as part of my third rotation stands out. It was an amazing chance to really get to know a new country and only served to reinforce my desire to pursue a permanent role in the Spanish team.”
