How did you end up in this job?

During my final year at university, I began applying for commercial roles in the FMCG industry. I undertook a 12 month placement year at Kellogg’s so decided this line of work was where I wanted to pursue a career. In my final year of university I began applying for graduate schemes in the food industry and Premier Foods was a good fit for this.
