What do you enjoy most about your role?

The understanding that I have for the business and how large the company is, speaking to so many people from every segment of the business allows me to understand exactly what people and what Lubrizol do!

How much responsibility do you have?

For project work, I have lots of responsibility. I have read and write access to the global network. I’m given a project with some guidance and expected to see it through to the end, which is good to see that I am trusted.

What is the office atmosphere like?

Within Information Solutions, I feel like I could go up to anyone and ask for help and they would be willing to provide it or point me in the right direction. There is always someone I can ask when I need help or some guidance with my work.

What is your biggest achievement?

My biggest achievement was being given an extension on my placement and being able to work with Lubrizol for my final year project at University.

How has the experience exceeded your expectations?

The role that is advertised is not just what the job entails. I have been given so much more freedom and responsibility that I initially thought I would have.

What advice would you give to students applying for your role?

I would say to take every opportunity that comes to you and don’t be afraid to reach out to anyone in Information Solutions or the company as everyone is fantastic and really helpful.
