“What I really like about working for Avon is the people. At Avon, everyone’s opinion matters. I also really like the amazing hamper that every employee receives at Christmas, it says a lot about how the company cares and looks after of the employees, regardless of their position. Finally, I have found the Training and Development opportunities exceptional, there is plenty of training on offer to everyone interested. For example, I was recently included in a team carrying out a Kaizen (continuous improvement) initiative on the shop floor."

"One of my best experiences has been being part of the #ThinkSTEM programme, which we launched 18 months ago. For example, we recently hosted an International Women in Engineering Day at Hampton Park West. Here, we had girls from local schools and their teachers to come in, to see what a career in engineering could entail. I was really pleased that we had engaged in the local community. It made me really proud to be part of Avon.”

Avon are really good at giving employees training to push themselves to the next level. My best experience so far was completing my Level Three NVQ. It was hard, but rewarding."

"When I took the position at Avon Rubber, I moved to Bath, and now I pinch myself every time I go home. The city is stunning, set within a valley of rolling green hills, and stuffed full of beautiful historic architecture. My girlfriend lives in Bristol, and that too provides a great change of scenery for great music, entertainment, sport and nightlife. When I applied to Avon Rubber, I worried that being outside of London would be a compromise, now I count my lucky stars. I am able to enjoy this beautiful part of the world, and dip my toes into London whenever I want."

I would recommend working at milkrite | InterPuls to a friend, especially as you have opportunities to travel, to see different cultures and to meet people all over the world.”

“My best experience whilst working for milkrite | InterPuls was when a farmer came to me on a show stand in Latvia, and he almost kissed me and was crying because our product, Impulse Air, saved his two cows.”

“What I love about milkrite | InterPuls is that there is no big difference between a managing director or let’s say a sales manager. We can communicate on one level.
