I started my placement at Scott & Fyfe this year under the IDTC training programme. The IDTC is a programme which helps young people to get experience in the workplace by assisting them in gaining placements. I had worked in different areas before such as healthcare and the construction industry but I didn’t feel like they were for me. During my placement at Scott & Fyfe I carried out market research tasks to support the Pod Managers and really enjoyed the new challenge!


After my placement I was offered a temporary contract to work as ‘Market Insight & Sales Representative’ as part of the Pipe Fabric Technology Pod (PFT). In this role I analysed the Cured In Place Pipe (CIPP) market as a whole and drew conclusions on how Scott & Fyfe should proceed.


Other duties in the role included helping out with the Marketing Communications for a new product: Alphashield


One of the highlights has been providing factory tours and assisting with academic courses we held for blue chip companies. Here I was able to teach groups the design tools we use in Scott & Fyfe and that was really exciting!!


After I completed my placement in the PFT Pod, I was delighted to be offered a permanent contract as ‘Production and Quality Co-ordinator’ as part of the new Productionisation Team in the company. My role is to be in charge of all trials being processed, ensuring that they all run smoothly and to the specifications required. It will be a great new challenge but I am confident it will be great.
