I have worked for Advipro since 01 August 2017. I became acquainted with them at a job fair organised by the LBK, The Student Society of the Bioscience Engineering Students of KU Leuven, from where I graduated as a bioengineer specialising in biosystems (Human Health Engineering). I immediately had a good feeling about Advipro.
Their specialization in the pharmaceutical industry was very appealing to me and especially the fact that they have a department for both Project Support and for Testing. A lot is also done to maintain a pleasant group spirit, which already showed from their Facebook-page. I think that is important because everybody is working at different projects with clients. I was only just hired and I was already invited to a sailing event.
After my first weeks of training at Advipro, I was deployed at a project as Supplier Qualification Engineer for an academic spin-off, specialized in immunotherapy. I will monitor there whether suppliers are able to deliver correctly and what will happen with the product and with the patient should this not be the case. I am substituting someone here who gave me onboard training in the company. I work here together with five other Advipro-engineers, so I am certainly not facing my task alone. We work together in an open structure: you can ask everything to everybody, your colleagues and the management support you wherever necessary.
