We hear from Junrui Wang, an Analyst at Smiths Group PLC who has worked in three countries across five divisions at Smiths Group PLC on her two year graduate placement
"I have been with Smiths Group for two years and will move from a Reporting role within Head Office to a Commercial role within one of divisions in this year. I've had the opportunity to work in Singapore, Malaysia and China, working with stakeholders regularly and building some fantastic relationships along the way. Working at Smiths has really helped me build up my commercial awareness and a knowledge of different business models and functions.
In my two years I've been given real responsibility from day one and gained exposure across functions and divisional projects as well as had some fantastic international experiences which were invaluable opportunities that really boosted my development.
I have been involved in a wide range of financial responsibilities including reporting, budgeting, software application projects, international audit and treasury related work. Smiths is an organisation where you are always learning and the learning curve is steep here. If you are looking for a great challenge and something that gives you the opportunity to work abroad then Smiths is the place for you. I've also been tremendously supported and people are very willing to help you out and to teach and guide you.
I'm pleased to say that I achieved my accountancy qualification with the support of my team. My team and the people at Smiths really do appreciate and value your work and you will be given a great opportunity to grow and learn whenever there is an opportunity."
