- Working to targets – setting goals and working to individual or team targets
In addition to full training and a competitive benefits package, this role provides a huge range of transferable and marketable skills.

- Developing a high level of professionalism
- Working as part of a busy team and supporting each other
Past members of our interview team have used their experience to progress in the role as team leaders and managers or have moved on to our graduate researcher programmes elsewhere in the company.
