Like many people, when I left university I still wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. When looking at different companies TPP stood out to me because of the variety in the work it does, the open and team-based working environment, and the awards it has won for being an outstanding company to work for.
TPP has a flat hierarchy with no team leaders or middle management, which meant that I was trusted with a large amount of responsibility early on. When starting work, I was immediately able to make an impact on multi-million pound international projects and within a month had represented the company on visits to health centres in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Since then, I’ve also travelled to several provinces of China and different regions of the UK.
As a new graduate, it was refreshing to be able to challenge things I didn’t agree with or understand and have my opinion listened to. At TPP, mistakes are accepted as part of the learning process. This leads to a really open culture and leaves you free to do your job without worrying.
Outside of work there are loads of great perks such as being part of sports teams, pub Fridays and regular social events. Most employees are relatively young and live within a similar area, so it is easy to get involved in the social side of things, especially as there is so much to do in Leeds.
TPP was definitely the right choice for me. If you’re looking for an interesting and varied career at a company where you are really well looked after then this is the job for you!
