"I had a fantastic year at Knorr-Bremse. For one, my EHS placement was highly rewarding as I was able to contribute to many different areas of the business. I was also lucky enough to regularly shadow and learn from the UK EHSQ Director, which was highly beneficial in enhancing my skillset for future employment. Finally, I can only admire the social work ethic at Knorr-Bremse - Every day was a challenge workwise but I was always laughing, and I can only thank the wonderful colleagues and friends I made here for allowing me to be myself and guiding me during difficult work-periods."
