"I get to experience all aspects of the Bungy operation from start to finish. Risk and safety management is a huge part of what we do here, being at the forefront of our minds at all times. The Risk Management and Operations Management papers I completed in Terms 1 & 2 at QRC, provided me with the skills and understanding to deal with the realities of the industry. It also feels great being able to bring new ideas and energy to all aspects of the business."
