This is a 5 weeks placement. My main job is to help Ringtons’ Responsible Sourcing Manager to check the suppliers’ self-assessment questionnaires which were sent to our tea and flavour suppliers last year. I also designed an online self-assessment questionnaire for Ringtons’ suppliers. Otherwise I built up a risk assessment to measure the safety risk for each supplier. I also helped commodities tea buyer test the moisture levels in tea purchased. I spent some time at Ringtons’ factory, learning quality control, particularly around packaging quality.
The colleges are nice and helpful. They will tell you everything they known and help you solve the problem or any considering.
