A Level student gets a taste of Reacta Healthcare

At Reacta Healthcare, we’re not just keen to support our existing workforce. We make it our mission to foster new talent and nurture the new generation entering the workforce. Our work experience placements give bright, enthusiastic young people a taste of working life in STEM and the pharmaceutical sector.


Lucy Ollier is an A Level student at Brine Leas Sixth Form. We were delighted to welcome her to Reacta Healthcare for some work experience. Lucy worked across various departments, including New Product Development, Production, and Quality Assurance. She observed a variety of different tasks, including the processes followed in the manufacture of products, and the use of new technology for packaging them.


Lucy says: “The pharmaceutical sector has always interested me, and my time at Reacta Healthcare has certainly reinforced that! I got an insight into various processes involved in making accurate and effective challenge meals available. I particularly enjoyed working part of the New Product Development team – it’s fascinating seeing the magic that goes into taking something from an idea to the finished product.


“It wasn’t long before I saw how hardworking the team at Reacta Healthcare is – there’s certainly more paperwork than I realised! They are such a thorough team and the accuracy in their processes are second to none.


“I’m looking to study biomedical science or biochemistry at university. Hopefully alongside my studies I can undergo more work experience like this. I’m keeping an open mind, but I like to think that a career in pharmaceuticals is on the cards for me!”
