“I’ve been a bit surprised with the scope of the different fields in which Airbus is involved. I’m doing projects for two supervisors who work in different parts of the organization - Jaakko works with Defence and Space customers while Samuel is working with public safety and mission critical business customers in Secure Land Communications. I’m doing projects for both of them and my projects include quite a lot of market research and market analysis.
My daily tasks vary from day-to-day. I have to be in contact with people from many different departments - for example, I cooperate with marketing trainees and colleagues from the purchasing side. It has been interesting to see what happens in different departments inside Airbus and what people from different functions work on. All in all, my work has had a pretty fast pace. I like that there is always something to do and that I have been able to use my own creativity in my work.
The trainee program has been challenging enough even for a recent graduate like me. I’ve been able to push and challenge myself, and I think that the level of tasks I have been assigned and my skills match well together. It's rewarding to see what I've learned and achieved already in such a short time. All in all, I think Airbus’ trainee programme teaches skills that are valuable and useful for my future, not only in working life, but also outside of work.”
