Graduate joins the Design Team
We are pleased to announce that we have added to our design department and employed Bangor University graduate Owen Roberts following an impressive placement during his time as a student. Owen was a product design student at Bangor University and had placement in the Design Department at The Fifth Wheel Company. This is the second university graduate that The Fifth Wheel Company has recruited over the past few years.
We have been working with Bangor University since 2010 and have offered 6 students the opportunity to work within the design department and gain valuable experience.
Gethin Whiteley, Design director at The Fifth Wheel Company had this to say about the partnership with Bangor University: “The Partnership we have with Bangor University is beneficial to everyone involved as students gain valuable experience, and The Fifth Wheel Company have access to bright individuals with fresh ideas that will help continue the growth of the company”.
Owen Roberts mentioned that the skills and experience that he picked up while on placement here help him during his final year project. I was delighted when Adrian and Gethin came to visit my degree show and had no idea that they would be offering me a job.
