My internship at Flen Health

Hi, my name is Robrecht, I am a 21-year-old student and I have just finished my academic bachelor in Bioscience Engineering. I was born and raised in the surrounding area of Antwerp and I live a short drive away from the Flen Health office in Kontich.

During my first job interview, I was confident that working at Flen Health would be a great training opportunity. Before I started my one month’s internship, my supervisor took the necessary time to explain me everything I needed to know to get started. Then, it was my turn.

Currently, I work on a biotechnological project, which includes the use of several microbiological techniques. I really enjoy my tasks; it is exciting to setup laboratory test runs with professional equipment and subsequently analysing the results. What I enjoy the most, is the trust that Flen Health have in me as a person and my skill set.

Sure, as a student you gain knowledge from books and classes but experiencing the daily business in the R&D department at Flen Health is something you cannot learn from books. This has given me the hands-on-experience I required.
