Data Management Intern, Digital HR, Lonza, Basel (CH)
Clara joined Lonza in September 2020 as a Data Management Intern and is completing her placement year as part of her studies at the University of Exeter. She is part of the Digital HR team, where she supports data-related tasks such as the upcoming Data Catalog and glossary.
Lonza has an incredible reputation and opportunities for career growth. As my first full-time job, I wanted to work at a company where I could learn new things every day (as has been the case!) and be exposed to different areas of HR. For example, during the first couple of months of my internship, I was able to join several projects in different areas such as Talent and Organizational Development.

Their patience! As a global team, patience is key. Obviously with different time zones, completing tasks can be challenging, but everyone does their best. The pandemic forced us to work from home which made things a little difficult but the team has been very patient and took the time to explain and support me with my tasks.
