You'll have the opportunity to attend events and be an ambassador for Safran, networking with key stakeholders and promoting our key behaviours.

We have interesting facts / historic articles stored on site which is a project in its own right. This would run alongside your day-to-day tasks and would be an opportunity to help us make a difference in how we store our library of information. You would be key in helping us devise a more effective organised way of referencing all our items, and, where relevant, ensuring that historic pieces are sent to museums, therefore preserving the history and legacy of the company in Gloucester and the UK!

You will also have the opportunity to pitch new fun and interesting ideas and projects to encourage employee engagement, foster team-building for the site!

In summary this is an opportunity for someone to come in and make this their own. We want you to get as much out of this as we do!
