Like many university leavers I sought a career with good scope for progression and the graduate opportunities at JJS have offered exactly that. Having worked through roles as a Commercial Graduate Trainee, Account Manager and Senior Account Manager I now work as a Commercial Team Manager.
Today I have responsibility for a team of 7 and for over £18m of annual sales, servicing a large global customer. An average day sees me liaising with contacts in the UK, France, Spain and Germany and selling product which ships to platforms all over the world – as far afield as Australia, Brazil and Japan. This has afforded me good opportunities to travel and to work with a broad spectrum of people at all levels.
Since completing the graduate scheme JJS has continued to acknowledge my aspirations and support my professional development by sponsoring me in pursuing a professional qualification to supplement my undergraduate and master’s degrees.
