VHE University Placement Year Students – Where are they now?
07 May 2019
VHE are continuing to look back at some of the 26 placement students we have employed since 2005. Olivia Jackson was a Geo-Environmental placement student between 2016 and 2017.
Since leaving VHE Olivia graduated in 2018 with a 1st class BSc Environmental Science with a Year in Industry from Sheffield Hallam University and is currently working in Manchester for E3P ltd, a multidisciplinary environmental consultancy, as a Geo-Environmental Consultant.
Reflecting on her time with VHE Olivia commented; “My placement year at VHE helped me attain a job before I had even finished University due to the experience I had gained whilst completing it. Many applicants you are up against for jobs after University are unlikely to have first-hand experience so while placements can be very hard to attain it is essential you take the opportunity if it is there.”
