Thinking ‘outside the box’ finds Jasmine her perfect placement

An engineering company might not initially appear to be the ideal place for an Events student to be on a 48 week placement, but Jasmine Moore has proved that it sometimes pays to think ‘outside the box’.

She is currently working alongside the Global Head of Marketing at AESSEAL which is based in Rotherham. Multi award-winning AESSEAL is one of the world's leading specialists in the design and manufacture of mechanical seals and support systems which are used in a wide range of pumps and rotating equipment worldwide to prevent liquids and gases escaping into the environment.
Although as part of her induction training Jasmine had to demonstrate her ability to assemble a mechanical seal (a skill which will no doubt be useful one day) her role is in the Marketing Department.  Jasmine explains:  ‘I am the chief editor of the company newsletter which comes out monthly; the administrator for customer training and some employee training; I order merchandising items and organise the translation and printing of advertising literature and I am working on updating departmental procedure instructions. I have been responsible for this year’s company calendars from start to finish. AESSEAL also has a large programme of events and I am responsible for organising our participation in various STEM events which are aimed at encouraging children and young people to consider engineering as a career.’

Jasmine is enjoying her placement:
‘I enjoy it all.  It’s an unusual placement for an Events student but it’s something unique and I love learning something new every day.’
