a COMPANY in Belper is experiencing a bit of ‘va va voom’ thanks to a French exchange student working on a placement with them.
Damien Gravelle, 19, who is currently in his first year of a two-year post A-level course in international trade at the Lycee Antoine Watteau, in Valenciennes, France, joined Adshead Ratcliffe and Co Ltd, of Derby Road, earlier this month for an eight-week student placement to gain international trade knowledge that will prepare him for his final BTS exam in June 2012.
In his role, Damien has been tasked with research, analysis and monitoring of potential clients in European countries.
Damien said: “I am pleased to be staying and working in Belper, which is a beautiful, historical town with friendly people.
“And it is a pleasure to do my work placement with Adshead Ratcliffe and Co Ltd.”
