I am currently on placement at Kantar and enjoying the daily work. Alongside the responsibility you are initially entrusted with, you have the chance to attend many social events. The various teams and the company as a whole are always arranging socials to ensure everyone is able to find time to relax and enjoy working here.
The placement was really useful and a great opportunity to understand the world of market research. Everyday is different and there are a wide range of tasks to complete. Within your first few weeks you will be responsible for completing important reports however, colleagues are always there to help and answer questions.
The placement allows for a variety of skilled t be learnt and developed which are not only important in the job role but are also important for fututre careers. I thoroughly enjoy the challenges the role presents but also the rewards and personal satisfaction gained throughout the placement. Well worth the year out of university.
I am currently working as the HR and Resourcing Asssistant (only 3 months left) and I have loved my time here at Kantar Worldpanel! I have been given loads of responsibility and I get the chance to work with people all over the business. The main highlight was planning the graduate recruitment day at the Emirates Stadium with around 100 candiates!
