I absolutely loved it! I have had the best year, it's not like any other job or work experience I had real responsibility and my own real projects. I felt like a proper employee not just an Intern. I couldn't recommend doing a placement year enough, especially at a company like Porsche, here you are so lucky as teams are really small you can really get the most out of your experience. 10/10 I don't want to leave!
This was my first full time job so I was nervous to be thrust into an office environment of an international corporate company, especially given my diverse working-class background and Porsche's luxury status. However, my team in the Motorsport department were welcoming and friendly, and I feel like I settled into the role well. I really enjoyed having a 9-5 role with a regular schedule, the workload was varied but not too overwhelming, and I have learnt so many useful skills that will provide a solid foundation for my professional future.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Porsche. From the beginning, I felt welcome and was able to settle in quickly. My team were supportive and if I had any questions or issues they were approachable and helpful in answering these. The job included a variety of different tasks and came with a good level of responsibility. I felt my work was valued and important. In addition, the training opportunities I received have helped me develop both professionally and personally.
My experience with Porsche was thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish and I am so grateful to have met so many great people! You are presented with a good level of responsibility from the onset and as you progress and develop, that level of responsibility only increases from there on! It was a great environment to work in and I really felt like a part of the team, which made my experience all the better.
I thoroughly enjoyed my placement year at Porsche Cars GB. Despite being an intern, I was trusted with various responsibilities, which not only allowed for my confidence to grow, but I also learnt what I was capable of achieving, whilst always having a supportive and knowledgeable team to fall back on in case of any challenges. I not only enjoyed the work aspect of the job, but Porsche are keen to create a friendly and inclusive workplace, making the office very social and supportive.
My placement at Porsche Retail Group had completely exceeded all of my expectations, it was an invaluable year for me, both personally and professionally. I was given the best opportunities and experiences that have enhanced my current skills and have allowed me to develop new skills. I would highly recommend this placement to anyone.
I enjoyed my internship very much. I was provided with a number of opportunities and different working environments within the Ownership team. My year within Porsche taught me a lot about the automotive industry, particularly Porsche Classic and how a large organisation works. Previously I had never worked within a large business so this was very useful.
I thoroughly enjoyed my year and found myself in a team that not only pushes me to become a better professional, but also a better person. I was always provided with the help and support I needed and was always given a variety of high valued work that made me rethink how I could tackle the problem.
I thoroughly enjoyed my year working for Porsche Cars GB. This placement has shown me what working in the industry is like from Day 1 and has continued to develop my skills and practical knowledge from then - all of which has been a great experience. It's been a fantastic year working for Porsche and I would recommend it to anyone!
I enjoyed working at Porsche greatly. I was lucky enough to get my first choice of placement and the perfect role for me. I was excited to start after seeing the job description but was pleasantly surprised at the extra roles the job involved which where not first mentioned. I would recommend anyone to apply for a job at Porsche.
I enjoyed this internship thoroughly for a few reasons. Firstly, the team are so supportive and friendly. Secondly, there are many fun events held throughout the year that you're able to get stuck into. Thirdly, there are several projects outside of the normal work task so every day is different.
My placement at Porsche Car Great Britain has exceed all of my expectations. The amount of responsibility I have been given combined with the support I have received from the entire office has allowed me to develop into a much more confident and well-rounded individual. The office was incredibly fun with lots of social outings which enabled me to build strong relationships with my colleagues.
Simply put, if you ask me to pick a highlight from my 12 months at Porsche Cars Great Britain, I would struggle to fit them all on the page. The company acknowledge your role as much more than just an internship, there are opportunities to take on projects and charity events outside of the job role. The people, at every level of seniority will treat you with respect and from my experience were very pleasant to talk to on a daily basis, it definitely feels like a tight-knit group.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my placement year, it has been an amazing opportunity to gain relevant work experience & develop my key skills. I have been so fortunate to work for such a friendly, fun company who provide their employees with a wide range of experiences & benefits. The placement has allowed me to organise corporate incentive events from start to finish giving me valuable insight into the events industry. I’ve found the experience of working at the Silverstone race track and at such a prestige venue a great motivating factor. I have had an amazing year and will be truly sad to leave.
I have really enjoyed my internship with the motorsport team at Porsche. As I am trying to plan a career in event management, the experiences and skills I have learnt here have been very relevant - from office admin and event planning, dealing with clients and suppliers to on site hospitality and contractor management at race weekends.
The placement scheme at Porsche has been one of the best experiences, I have been able to get involved in so many activities and training sessions that I wouldn't have been able to do with any other company. My role was within the finance team, however, I was able to get involved with customer days at the Porsche Experience Centre at Silverstone, I was invited to join the motorsport team at one of the Carrera cup rounds, all of the interns got the opportunity to have training in the cars/brand and even got to experience them first hand on the PEC track. I would recommend this placement to anyone, even if cars do not interest them it was an amazing experience.
I thoroughly enjoyed working in the Finance department at Porsche Retail Group. The experience I gained, and the skills that I learnt over the course of the year are invaluable. I had the opportunity to put business theory that I had learnt over the course of my degree into practice which helped me get to grips with some of the more difficult topics.
Extremely enjoyable! The range of tasks/projects that I took part in meant that my job was different and interesting on a regular basis. On a personal basis, I thrive of having a large amount of responsibility and the job definitely gave me that as soon as I was able to gain an understanding of the processes and systems, I could jump straight into innovating and working on my own projects - some of which required a large amount of responsibility. Throughout the internship, I was also able to work with a range of departments and attend some training sessions which gave a very good grounding in the workplace environment.
