SAC Consulting Summer Placement: Edinburgh
Each summer, SAC Consulting offers three students the chance to undertake a summer placement at one of their offices around the country. Students who apply are in Year 3 going into Year 4 of their Honours degree, and the application process is highly competitive. The students spend the summer helping in the busy centres – shadowing experienced consultants and deciding if a job on the SAC Consulting Team is what they want to do when they finish their degree course.
Rachel Foley, a BSc Agriculture student from Musselburgh in East Lothian, spent her placement in the Technopole science and technology park in Edinburgh. Rachel said: “An important part of the placement was the interaction with farmers and members of the pubic at discussion meetings and open days.”
“I’ve really enjoyed my time at SAC as it has helped motivate me for my fourth year studies, while highlighting how diverse a career in agricultural consulting can be.”
