Think it might be right for you? Don't just take our word for it. Take a look at the experiences of some of our previous students.


Lauren Baldam

Studied English Language and Linguistics at the University of Sheffield.


Graduate Team Administrator.

Goals & Aspirations:

Following my placement year, I joined Centrica’s analyst graduate programme. My first placement is in the Power Team as a business development analyst. During the graduate programme I would like to experience a wide breadth of roles in both upstream and downstream.

General overview of the placement so far:

During my year in the graduate team I worked mainly in the recruitment area - liaising closely with the attraction manager to organise our on campus activities and the selection manager to arrange our assessment events. On top of this, I also spent time with the graduate development team which allowed me to get a good understanding of all of the different graduate programmes and helped me come to the decision of which programme was right for me.

Despite moving into a completely different type of role, the skills that I developed during the year have already proved highly useful in my first analyst placement.

Joe Kester
