Placement student recognised for excellence

Jade Donaldson

Jade Donaldson, a Computing with a Year in Industry student, has been awarded a  ‘GSK Placement Student Recognition of Excellence’ certificate and has been nominated for a  ‘Science Recruitment Group Industrial Placement Employee of the Month’ award, while on placement at GSK.

The nomination was made by Jade’s colleagues for sharing ideas, meeting target milestones, being proactive within her team and contributing towards a key project at GSK.

Jade said ‘I am very excited to have been nominated for the award, it has been a great year so far at GSK and this is a definite highlight. Thank you so much to my colleagues for nominating me.’

The School of Computing sends over 100 students on placements every year. The School has strong links with industry in Kent, nationally and internationally and has two dedicated placement officers who help students secure roles. The Industrial placement programme is available to all undergraduates and taught Master’s students in the School.

Jade is the third Year in Industry student from the School of Computing to win an award while on placement, following on from the success of Jordan Norris and Hubert Dziedziczak.
