Daily Teams meetings combined with training session, study time allocated weekly by myself, great foundation when it comes to the company induction and wonderful support group within my local team. Starting to adjust to a new environment and developing presentation skills necessary for the line of work I will be doing.
On a day-to-day basis, my role consisted of aiding senior Sales Specialists in any way I could. This ranged from setting up meetings with client directors and customers to designing and creating a working website for our sector, based on our future desires
I thoroughly enjoyed my placement year at Computacenter. Community, investment in youth and challenging work is what makes the scheme shine. From day one, I immediately felt at home - welcomed by friendly and supportive colleagues I have built friendships and a network to last a lifetime. The investment into the placement schemes is evident from the hard work put in by management and the future talent team. Opportunities are fruitful and really develop your character. The work itself, at least within the Cyber Security department, was challenging yet very rewarding. If I felt out of my depth there were plenty of people around me to support me. Overall, I'm very impressed and it's part of my personal plans to return to Computacenter after I finish my studies.
I was with Computacenter for a little over 14 months and had a very enjoyable time. There was a very good social side to working with the business, with monthly networking events where you could engage with other employees, partners and customers. The project I was working on was very active during my time and there was never a dull moment.
The future talent team really puts in alot of effort to ensure the experience is a good one. Ihad a great time this year, regularly setting up social events and checking up on how each of the interns were getting on in their roles. Loved the Christmas dinner also, brilliant time.
Computacenter truly felt like home to me. Everyone that I have met and worked with were so warm and welcoming and I was never treated as a 'placement student'. I have definitely matured and developed this past year and it has been one of the most fulfilling and memorable years I have had.
My placement year at Computacenter was an absolutely fantastic start to my career. For such a big company, the values it holds allows young people to thrive in the workplace. I was able to develop my skill set and knowledge as well as enhancing my confidence. Computacenter was a very sociable organisation with many networking events that were brilliant, as well as large cohort of 20 other placement students. Building these relationships and creating close friends made the placement year even more enjoyable.
I had an absolutely fantastic time on my placement year. I was given a lot of responsibility and I was also provided with numerous opportunities to develop my skillset. My team were extremely supportive and friendly. The work was varied, challenging and exciting. I was also able to do some International traveling which was fun. Now looking back, I can see a major improvement in my personal and professional development since starting my placement.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my industrial placement year at computacenter. This industrial placement year has helped me develop so much, both personally and professionally. I have had endless opporutnities to run my own projects, i have had the opportunity to travel internationally and have had the opportunity to attend some fantastic external events. I can genuuinly say that completing an industrial placement here at Computacenter was one of the best decisions and best opprotunity I have ever had date as my personal confidence has improved so much. Even more importantly, I now know the area where i wish to pursue my future career which i did'nt even know exisited before I joined Computacenter.
