“The most exciting part of the job is that you constantly gain knowledge on new topics. Additionally, you are also encouraged to pursue a certified training on the topics of your choice. The rotations after every six months are an excellent opportunity to get familiar with the way each section works and is also a very good chance for networking. Every day is challenging! For me, the programme is the perfect place for personal and professional development.”
