A group of students experienced the day-to-day dealings of a global medical communication business in Pudsey.
Luto led the Day in the Industry event at its Dawsons House research facility, entertaining 230 students from Crofton Academy, near Wakefield.
The company moved to Pudsey in 2018 and have spent the last year developing the building and creating a research facility with meeting rooms and event space.
Offering support to a great cause, Farsley Celtic Football Club sponsored the event by providing catering.
Penny Roberts Head of Business Development at Luto said:
“Our team were delighted to welcome students into the world of medical writing and communication. We put together some interesting activities for which we received fantastic feedback – which made it all worthwhile!”
He said young people are not aware of the vast number of career options within the health communications industry, therefore Luto and the Ahead Partnership have teamed up to run a Day in the Industry and invited close to 30 students from the Crofton Academy to attend Luto’s offices in Pudsey.
Crofton Academy students took part in activities very closely imitating the tasks Luto teams undertake on daily basis. The activities aimed to offer an understanding of what life is like in a pharmaceutical communications company and illustrated why Luto’s work is important in ensuring the safety of medicine users.
Rob Winterbottom, from Farsley Celtic, added:
“It’s a pleasure for Farsley Celtic to be able to support this event by providing a healthy and nutritious lunch for the students and staff. We work with a number of companies within the community and are looking forward to working in partnership with Luto as we both move forward. “
