Wessex Chambers of Commerce have welcomed 20 year old, French student Jordan Pelleau to the team on a work experience placement.

Jordan, from Brittany, France, is studying for a HNC in Business at Wiltshire College, Chippenham in order to improve his English skills and absorb some English culture.

There are 27 French students participating in the partnership between the University of Laval, France and Wiltshire College. Jordan will be supporting the Wessex Chambers team by producing marketing and events collateral. He will work on newsletters and flyers to inform businesses about the different events and services the Chamber offers. Jordan will also help build new databases to help drive new memberships.

Jordan said “I’m really enjoying my placement so far. My English is improving all the time and i’m learning some key skills too. I recommend more students take part in international work experience placements. They’re invaluable.”

Before joining the Chamber Jordan took part in another work experience placement in Shanghai, China. In this role he worked on finding customer prospects in Europe for a Chinese handbags manufacturer.  This also formed part of his HND in International Trade.
