  • Environmental Health and Safety Placement

    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....

    For many of us a placement is the first 38 hour a week type of job and so it gives you such a good opportunity to immerse yourself in a job role that you find interesting. The experience gained has been second to none and the skills and confidence it gives you will definitely set you up for your future career!...
