Real responsibility in the workplace
I found relocating scary at first as I was travelling over 260 miles away from home and would be hours away from family and friends. However, I quickly found that I really enjoyed being surrounded by similar people who share an interest in Engineering. Dyson Village is also a really exciting place to live! Not only is there state-of-the-art accommodation (a lot nicer than my friends' university rooms!), but having such small cohorts makes it feel like a real community where you know everyone.
I thought that I would be treated as someone who wasn't as valuable as the rest of the team in the workplace, but instead I have found that I have been given real issues to solve and given the same responsibilities as anyone else in my team. I feel like I am respected in my team and treated as an equal.
