Perfectus Biomed are providing an opportunity for Edge Hill University students to visit the company to experience working within a commercial laboratory setting. On November 25th, 25 students currently undertaking an ‘Applications in Biotechnology’ module at the University will join our team to experience the work that is carried out in a commercial laboratory setting. This development opportunity will provide students with valuable skills and knowledge that they can carry forward with them through the remainder of their study and into industry roles in the future.
Students will receive a presentation from our Laboratory Manager, Nick Hunt, on his journey through commercial science, from Quality Control to Management, and will have the opportunity to have their questions answered on what it is like to work within the industry. Following this, students will be provided with the opportunity to observe commercial test method demonstrations, provided by our experienced laboratory team, before meeting with representatives from each of our departments to understand the different roles within a commercial laboratory and hear about our team’s personal experiences.
At Perfectus Biomed, we believe the growth needed to support our business is fostered by growing our network of people, encouraging them to progress their careers as they support us in being the leading global provider of customised microbiology. Our work experience programmes provide students with a snapshot of the inner workings of a commercial laboratory and allows us to engage emerging talent within the STEM industry.
We are a key employer of graduates from the Manchester, Halton and Liverpool areas, which is key in terms of retaining exceptional talent within the area and increasing the areas reputation for offering world class science.
“I have worked for Perfectus Biomed for a year and it has been my most challenging, rewarding year yet. Twelve months ago, I was an undergraduate student wondering what my next step would be, now I am a trainee microbiologist at a company that has offered me endless opportunities, from exciting research to conferences all over the world.”
