The programme is a great opportunity to challenge yourself, take on responsibility and discover your future career. The group is flexible enough to offer space to develop your career interests – and DCC is continuing to expand around the world, which is only going to increase the range of opportunities on offer to graduates in the future.

What I discovered through my placements was that I really enjoyed working on projects. On my first placement, I focused on project managing the integration of Certas Energy UK’s largest acquisition. I also took responsibility for a large number of internal business improvement projects. For my second placement, at Exertis UK, I worked alongside a development team, helping them design, develop and test solutions for digitalising key business processes.

While I was on the programme, I got sponsorship to complete a project management qualification. This helped me secure a permanent role as a Project Manager for Certas Energy UK at the end of the scheme.

I am now working as a Project Manager for DCC plc, where I’ve contributed to acquisitions in Hong Kong and Macau and the US, as well as supporting our European businesses transition to the cloud.
