More Information:

A recent placement student had this to say about working for Profit Connect:

"I knew almost nothing about the industry before I came, but I was inducted into the company very quickly and within hours I was taught about the operation of the industry, auditing techniques, and had started my first supplier. I was given a lot of freedom working at a small company like PC, which I enjoyed greatly as it allowed me to work at my own pace and thrive in my own way. We were encouraged to take ownership of our work, giving us a lot of autonomy and each supplier I did was like my own little project; a new challenge and a new puzzle to solve, and after I figured it out, I would have something significant to show for it. With this autonomy, you’re constantly learning and adapting on the job, but Dan and Nick were always there if I got stuck or needed help. For these reasons I found the placement enjoyable and gratifying, and would definitely recommend!”
