Work placement to International Business

Joshua Robinson UN graduateJoshua graduated in Accounting and Finance from the University in 2014 and is currently working in as an accountant for an international specialist food business in Switzerland.

Life in Switzerland

He said: “Living in Zurich in Switzerland is particularly enjoyable. The opportunity to liaise with senior professionals in a top 30 Swiss listed company is enabling me to learn at a fast pace. The in-depth training programme that ARYZTA offers has helped me to develop as an employee and the benefits have already been huge!

Placements on my course

“While I was studying I completed a summer work placement at the National Accident Helpline as an assistant to the group accountant and this gave me the relevant industry experience I needed.

“My advice to anyone at university now would be to get as much industry experience as you can. The University of Northampton is a great place to enhance yourself and begin a great career. I had always hoped to achieve a lot, but never really believed I could. By the time I graduated, I had the belief instilled in me that I could go far and I still maintain this.”
