Staff Testimonial = “I joined Lenovo first as a student and then later
returned as a graduate into the marketing team. I was looking for a company
that offered an exciting challenge and the opportunity to make a real impact.
Lenovo allowed me the opportunity to work with a wide variety of colleagues
across Europe and gave me hands-on experience of managing real business
projects. In the time I have been here I have moved around a number of roles
and have had the opportunity to progress and drive real change in the
business. Working at Lenovo has been really eye-opening, I think the variety
of work and the number of people you interact with give a great grounding for
the future, the journey so far has been great and I believe the company will
continue to grow in the future.”
