My Work Placement at CVM World
Hi, I’m Ben and this is a look back at by employment placement at CVM World. As a third-year student at Derby University, studying Business management, I feel like I have gained a lot through academic teaching and learning the theories, but I felt I needed practical work experience to go hand in hand to further my knowledge.
I approached CVM World, a second stage motor vehicle manufacturer who take new panel vans pre-loved vehicles and convert them into customer ready minibuses, welfare vans and campervans to customers specific wants and needs.
Hoping that they had a placement for me, I met with Paul the operating director who kindly offered me work experience once a week within the business, starting off with shadowing the marketing team throughout the different aspects of their role. This blog will describe my first three-week experience within the business.
