Student work placement
27th July 2022
In July 2022, SciMed was approached by a school student who was looking to do a work-based placement as part of his curriculum. We were very impressed by the boldness of his approach, we decided to offer this student placement during his school holidays.
Whilst we’ve been thinking about how we can contribute and give back to this local community, this was a great opportunity for both the school student “Jake McCormick” and SciMed.
During his week’s placement with SciMed, he worked at our facility in Heaton Mersey in our applications laboratory, learning about the equipment and working alongside our application scientists.
He spent his time being shown how to use the equipment, but also getting involved in some of our current projects.
As a company, we look to expand on this contribution, and we’ll be looking for other ways to give back to the local community.
