For the fourth consecutive year, Gist Limited has been recognised within the Top 50 Medium-sized Undergraduate Schemes by RateMyPlacement.co.uk – the UK’s leading resource for career-conscious students seeking work experience.
The rankings, which were determined solely by student-written reviews, not only saw Gist finish within the Top 50, but also as the top performing third-party logistics provider.
“This is a fantastic achievement for Gist.” Says Kate O’Hara, Graduate and Emerging Talent Manager at Gist. “We have worked with RateMyPlacement over a number of years to gather feedback on our Industrial Placement schemes, in order to continuously improve the experience for our students.”
Students were asked a number of questions regarding their experience on the programme, ranging from; how much support they received, the level of responsibility given to them and the social aspects of the placement year. Rankings were then measured by assessing the percentage of Industrial Placement students to leave a review, the score given to each question and the quality of the feedback given.
A consistent theme of student reviews was the level of responsibility offered during the scheme, with one anonymous Operations Management Industrial Placement review reading: “My time with Gist has been challenging, rewarding and above all else very enjoyable. The individuals I have met, the challenges I have conquered and the skills I have acquired are second to none and I would without a doubt thoroughly recommend undertaking a placement year with Gist.”
“During their Industrial Placement roles, students gain real management experience and, as such, play a pivotal role within our business,” adds Kate. “The schemes can elevate our best talent onto our graduate programmes and beyond, ensuring that the next generation has the best possible start to their career within the logistics industry.”
