At the end of August ForFarmers says goodbye to current Harper Adams 2020/21 Placement Student, Holly Fletcher-Smith, and this week welcomes 2020/21 Stephen Evans as the 2021/22 student.
Holly has been working within the ForFarmers Pig Team for the last 13 months as part of her Industrial Placement year from Harper Adams University. As part of a varied placement she has gained experience in all aspects of ForFarmers and industry including leading a number of key pieces of work for the business.
Despite the challenges posed by being on a placement during a global pandemic including workplace changes and virtual meetings, Holly has experienced an insight into the many departments that make up ForFarmers including marketing, account management and the young animal feed team – establishing herself as a valued team member.
Wes Udall Young Animal Feed Specialist and lead of the pig industry scholarship comments: “COVID restrictions have limited Holly’s exposure to the business but she has still worked well on a variety of projects which have given her an insight into our business and allowed Holly to develop professionally and personally. We wish Holly her all the best for her final year at Harper Adams and in the future.”
