I’m Adam I will also be part of the dairy team over the next few weeks! I came to the dairy in early January eager, and hoping for the right placement to gain some great experience. I was very grateful to be accepted on a six week placement. I’m currently a third year student at Nottingham Trent but in my second year on a Business and Psychology Degree. Thankfully I changed course early on from sport to my course now; the other course just wasn’t quite right for me and felt I could achieve more in the exciting world of business!
I’ve loved my three years at Trent and really enjoyed my course. But I realise the importance of experience to go with a degree. Luckily I’ve had quite a bit of work experience, as I’ve worked from the age of 14, but I lacked the experience in the business environment, until I got to the dairy.
I currently work part time for the Lee Westwood Sports centre, which is Trent’s sport facility; I’ve worked there for nearly three years now and have to say that it’s a great place to work and a challenging environment with over 2,000 members. I’ve worked in bars and restaurants over these three years during my summer and Christmas breaks from University. I also worked for The Holiday inn Plymouth from the age of 16 – 18 whilst at college; I was quite glad to see the back of that job!
I’ve had a great few weeks so far at the dairy and gained some valuable experience, I now understand that you can learn more working for a business than sitting in a Lecture theatre. I hope I can have a positive impact on the dairy and contribute to the best of my ability and enjoy these coming weeks as much as I’ve enjoyed the past few.

My names Andy – I will be interning at the Dairy for a couple of weeks.
I currently study at The University of Derby – BA Hons Degree in Commercial Photography. I’m in my 3rd and final year and everything is starting to come together quite nicely. Besides starting an internship here at the dairy I have recently been nominated for the Student Photographer Of The year 2012 “professional photographer of the year” and I’m actively involved in several ongoing commissions in various areas of photography. The commissions range from still life to fashion based work and in addition to this my personal work is being published in Professional Photographer Magazine in April, so to sum up I am a pretty busy lad right now but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
My previous experiences (work based and otherwise) include working as a freelance photographer and as a photographers assistant,
I’m really looking forward to starting work here, Marketing and Advertising is something that really interests me and I cant wait to gain further insight into the industry from another angle and hopefully develop some mutually beneficial contacts along the way.
Hopefully I can contribute to the company during my time here and really help to make a difference. This experience whilst not only helping me with my studies massively, it is helping me to stand out from the crowd as few student photographers will have experience in this environment.
For years I have known that Advertising is something that I want to be heavily involved with in the future – Now I get to see and work on real live projects rather than just university module handbooks so its time to crack on!
game time! 😉

My names Harriet – I will be interning at the Dairy for a couple of weeks.
I currently study at Nottingham Trent University – reading Media & Journalism . I’m in my 2nd year and stuff is starting to get serious now!
My previous experiences includes writing for my local paper back home in Doncaster,’The Free Press’ where my work made it to the front page. ( woohoo!) Iv also published several pieces for the magazine ‘Profile’ that works along side the paper.
I’m really looking forward to starting work here, PR and Advertising has come up a lot in my modules, its something that really interests me and I cant wait to gain further insight into it.
Hopefully I can make brilliant contributions to the company during my time here and really help to make a difference. This experience will further my studies massively, helping me to stand out from the crowd.
Being at the front new product launches, big events, and marketing extravaganza’s is definitely somewhere I have always seen myself – So now lets see if I’m cut out for it!
Let the hard work commence!
