Over the past four weeks we’ve been lucky to have Aston University student Andrew Clarke working at Oxford Bus Company to gain some work experience. We caught up with him at the end of his time here to see how he got on…
So Andrew, what are you studying at University?
I am studying Transport Management at Aston University. We cover a number of modules that cover the different aspects of transport governance, law and operations.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I am actually a Scout Leader in my spare time and so I attend weekly meetings with the group and go camping on occasion. I also like to play Table Tennis with the University’s Table Tennis Forum when i’m on campus.
Have you enjoyed your time at Oxford Bus Company? What did you get up to?
I have really enjoyed my work experience here! I managed to visit virtually all the departments at Oxford Bus Company, from the bodyshop right through to seeing how marketing campaigns are created and designed. I had the opportunity to spend some time out of the office on Field duty at both Gloucester Green and Queen’s Lane, which was really interesting from an operational prospective.
What were the highlights from working here this month?
I really enjoyed meeting the whole Oxford Bus Company team, with people showing real interest and passion in their jobs and the transport sector. They were all really helpful in explaining their individual roles to me.
Thanks Andrew and good look in your second year at University!
