I was very impressed with the contact between ForFarmers and me once I had been offered the job. Wes, whom runs the placement, continued to call me monthly from the point of being offered the job. I also got the chance to meet Wes again half way through the academic year to go through details like the contract.
There was also opportunities to meet the wider team by attending sales meetings and events in between my studies. However, Covid -19 restrictions resulted in these unable to happen, however, Wes continued to keep in contact and I got to meet some of the other staff on the phone too before starting.
Knowing some of the team pre-starting massively eased my nerves when I did start my placement. And the offer to get involved in the team before starting made me feel very welcome and appreciated. My first two weeks with ForFarmers was also very helpful, consisting of lots of informative presentations on ForFarmers and the industry. It was a great chance to meet lots of staff too.
