Recruitment Trainee – Contracting 

  Are you a recent graduate feeling the pressure of finding your dream job? Perhaps you have it all planned out for yourself, or maybe you are, like many others, just dazed & confused. You know you are good at things, but you don’t know what exactly YOUR thing is. You liked the sciences enough to study them, but now aren’t sure if you want to spend all of your time in a lab? 

  Here is some food for thought: maybe, sometimes your dream job isn’t just what you do, but also the environment you get to do it in.

  Imagine you could work in a place where you can put all of your uni knowledge to good use, but also be out in the open and not stuck in a lab. Imagine having daily contact with other like minded people who love what they do, who look out for you and want you to succeed. And imagine constantly being able to build on your own knowledge from people who have been working in the sciences their whole lives. Sounds a little like a dream job, right?
