“The whole point of the graduate scheme is to learn…”

Global leader Edwards delivers innovative vacuum and abatement products to a diverse range of sectors: from the generation of power and the production of steel to the challenging environments of space simulation and high energy physics research.

In this webinar, some of Edwards’ graduates gave us a great insight into their day-to-day. We also learnt a lot about the culture at Edwards, which encourages both team success and personal growth. 

We thought it was particularly useful to hear from the graduates about things they had not succeeded in first time, or areas that they weren’t initially confident in. Watch this webinar to find out how they overcame challenges and got to where they are today.
