Product Supply Intern

Role: Product Supply Intern

Location: Reading Plant

I remember being told that working in industry is a completely different world from university life – and after a week at P&G I can only agree wholeheartedly. I am having a fantastic time, and (despite the early starts!) I could not be more excited about coming into work each morning.

Incoming interns across all departments were brought together at the beginning of the internship in a two-day “professional fresher’s week” to learn about the company, its values and to meet other students and graduates. Working in the Reading manufacturing plant is an incredible (yet a little overwhelming) experience; all the interns are given complex projects concerning real-world problems to manage over their internship, and have complete control over the direction they take to overcome challenges. Working out even where to start is a difficulty, but fortunately my manager and all my colleagues could not be being more helpful in answering questions!

I wasn’t really sure what to expect this week - yet my experience so far has surpassed all expectations I had. The site has an incredibly friendly vibe, and it is amazing to have a real impact in such a large company. Bring on the next nine weeks!
