"Overall the placement was a really good experience and I would recommend this position to anyone looking for a laboratory based role. I enjoyed my placement because each day was different and I had the opportunity to experience different areas of the plant that I wouldn't have otherwise had the opportunity to see. I was also given the opportunity to gain in depth knowledge of different systems on site." Read full review
