What was it like joining Firstco as graduate?
Working as a graduate at Firstco put me closer to engineering. When I first joined Firstco I had the opportunity to work on Stansted Track Transit System (TTS) project and experience every step of the project lifecycle. I found myself doing real work and making a contribution straight away.
Also, as a graduate I was assigned a mentor who helped me adjust quickly to the new work environment. We still have regular meetings and discuss about a wide range of topics, including my career aspirations and training courses I would be interested in.
Have you learned much since working at Firstco?
I gained valuable experience from my colleagues at Firstco who are always willing to share their knowledge and expertise. Also, I’ve attended several training courses. There is an internal training scheme available for all engineers who want to learn PLC programming.
How would you describe Firstco’s company culture?
Teamwork and friendly colleagues can make each day fun and interesting. I love the relaxed working environment and the flexibility of the company. Also, our Social Committee organises various events throughout the year, such as the summer picnic and Go Karting. It‘s a great way to bring everyone together and have fun outside of work.
