Supporting the sales team on a range of regular tasks and ad-hoc projects was the main aspect of my role. Under the supervision of my line manager, I was tasked with managing product availability reports and distributing them to clients. I would also respond to client queries and worked alongside other company departments involved in deals closed by the sales team. I also supported my line manager with budgeting updates and processes.
Writing and editing articles for the internal digital newsletter that is sent to 36 territories globally. Running social media campaigns for the NBCU International channels and extrapolating data from articles to monitor open rates and comms success. Supporting the wider team in an array of projects including across DEI, CSR and global support.
Completion of controllership tasks, such as journals, reconciliations and cashflow forecasts. Processing of payments to meet quarterly targets, including setting up vendors, raising purchase orders and processing invoices. Financial Planning and Analysis tasks, for example setting up titles on a global tracking system and completing ad-hoc reporting tasks.
My role mainly consists of updating finance report files from partners, communicating internally with team members about costs, and updating budgets and actuals. Ad-hoc projects also take up a lot of time which vary month-on-month. These could be anything from subscriber modelling for a potential new launch territory to looking at an expansion of content in an established region.

I had a great year at NBCUniversal, it was my first role and have learnt a lot during the year. My role was hands on and I had responsibilities that were mine and real work to do, I wasn't just making tea or coffee. I had the opportunity to learn a lot about media and how a big corporate company operates, and this was an invaluable experience. And talks from business leaders were also very insightful.
This placement/year long internship was everything I had hoped it to be, I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I I've had amazing exposure across many different films and worked very closely with lots of different talent at some really cool publicity events and premieres! I finished uni a couple years ago so was taking this internship hoping that it might materialize into a permanent role either at the company or at one of the many agencies that they work with. I am happy to say that I have been offered a permanent role, so really I couldn't be happier that I tool this job.
I really loved my placement experience in general! The atmosphere of the office makes you want to get up and be productive every single day. My team was lovely, trustworthy, honest, and most importantly, ensured that I have enough responsibility on a weekly basis. This allowed me to not only feel valued, but to thrive and evolve my skills further (whether they were personal or technical). The lock down placement experience was also very enjoyable. I would not change it for anything :)
The placement provided a good, extensive overview of the company processes and structures, and it was very helpful in showing what the industry looks like and functions. The tasks themselves were mostly admin based and basic, but you are obviously just an intern and you are there to learn, which you do end up doing very much. The company atmosphere is great and informal compared to other corporate companies, which was helpful to settle in well.
