Why did you choose to join a small company like VFV after graduation?

I have always valued the variety of work and responsibility that comes with operating in a smaller team, and have found this to be invaluable in my professional development so far. Knowing everyone at the company personally and the ‘doors always open’ management style of VFV provides me with ample opportunities to exchange knowledge and guidance with all members of the team – in the meeting room or the tea room.

What have you been doing since you joined VFV?

My work at VFV has so far been within the Production Department, working both inside and outside the cleanroom to design, assemble and refine the sterile fluid transfer assemblies that the company is known for. The graduate program will soon take me to the Sales department, where I am very excited to speak directly to the end users of our products and explore new ways VFV products can be used in industry.

What have you enjoyed the most in your time?

I’ve loved interesting and often very humorous discussion I’ve had with my manager Nick while working in the cleanroom. It is a pleasure to have excellent company during production jobs, and I have learned a lot about cleanroom manufacturing and operation while working with him.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

Hopefully still at VFV! By then I will have completed the graduate program after a year in each of the Production, Sales and Quality departments. I should have a good grasp of most aspects of the business, and would like to be utilising this knowledge to assist in the further advancement and expansion of the company.

What type of person would you encourage to apply for the VFV Graduate program?

Anybody who values a sociable and collaborative workplace, and has an interest in the technologies that make sterile manufacturing of drugs and biologics possible.
