I would just like to thank our student for his drive and commitment. I hope that he has got some value from his work experience with AstraZeneca and now has a better idea of how he might like to focus his career..

How has the student’s role added value and benefit to your organisation?

The student has added value in terms of contributing to the automation of some risk assessment and analysis. He has also contributed to team meetings and worked across the team to build his confidence in the workplace.

Can you offer advice to other organisations considering hosting second year undergraduates on work placement?

Good to ensure you’ve thought about how to support the undergraduate in terms of engaging them in suitable work and ensuring you engage them in meetings with other key contacts who can provide career advice and coaching to demonstrate how working for the organisation can be of value
to them.

What would you say are the most important skills and quantities you look for in a prospective employee?

Drive and commitment.

Do you think it is important for students to undergo Work Based Learning during their studies?

Yes - it is important as it is for permanent employees to continue to learn in the work environment.
