So far the JJS commercial graduate scheme has been a great experience; learning all areas of the business has broadened my knowledge and understanding of manufacturing at JJS. I was attracted to the role because of the wide range of training opportunities and further study.
I was originally concerned about approaching JJS as I had no previous experience of working in electronics however the graduate scheme has been designed to teach you all aspects of the business from start to finish. So far I have spent time in Engineering and Through Hole Assembly and learning how to read engineering build packs and solder components onto circuit boards. I have also been given the opportunity to supervise a production line which I had not experienced before, so there is plenty of variety.
The two year programme ensures that I will be a trained Account Manager with lots of opportunities to progress. JJS are also supporting me to study a Postgraduate Certificate in Leadership and Management; this will allow me to apply my learning into the workplace. Whilst it is still early days, it is clear that JJS encourage personal development which will benefit both myself and JJS in the future.
