Our graduate stories



"I joined the company as a placement project engineer in the manufacturing project team in July 2017. As part of the team, I participated in factory extension projects including; existing distribution capacity enhancement, meal factory extension and feasibility studies on a new distribution centre."


My development during the graduate programme

During my placement, I was given the opportunity to attend professional training courses, to develop my skills with Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Project. apetito has also provided me with all the support I’ve needed to become a Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM).

The working environment in apetito is so different from other companies. It’s nothing like the ‘corporate world’, it’s more like a family and I’ve been made to feel welcome from day one.  I am lucky enough to be returning to a full-time role now that I have graduated from university.
