Environment Manager at British Gypsum
My experience is based on the opportunities offered by British Gypsum to help me progress my career since my Gap year in 2007 to my position now as Environment Manager.
By the time I graduated in 2011, I had worked with British Gypsum for over three years between my gap year and summer holidays. I could hit the ground running on my first day as an Environmental Assistant, already knowing the team, business and sites well enough to start my work.
This was a fantastic opportunity not only for British Gypsum to get to know me as a potential employee, but also for me to see how the business works. I was able to graduate and work full time with a team I already knew, which made the first day feel like coming home, rather than starting school.
