Personal Attributes and Behaviours
“Stannah offers a great opportunity for a placement student. They place a high emphasis on education and continued professional development, and foster a very friendly and welcoming office environment. As a software engineer specifically, the work I do is exactly the same as the rest of the team – I’m not just sat in a corner for a year! I also work extensively with other areas in Engineering, particularly the Test and Development team, the Hardware team, and the Concepts/R&D team, which really provides a very rounded and holistic overview of the engineering process.”
