Really enjoyed the first half of the placement being on site and learning from my colleagues. Unfortunately I spent the second half of the placement working from home which was a completely different experience but was unavoidable.
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.
It was a great experience and one of the things I loved most was the placement community; we were a cohort of around 18 placement students and we had socials and events throughout the year to get to know each other and it was an excellent community.
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.
I had a fantastic time working for Computacenter, I was given a real job with real responsibilities. I worked with over 30 of Computacenter's largest customers to drive great customer experience, this involved traveling to customer sites across the UK. I hosted customer innovation workshops to increase collaboration and creativity. Also, I was engaged in the future talent network 'FreshMinds' to develop my leadership by seeking funding from senior leaders to host my own soft skill workshops internally and with Computacenter's partners. The Freshminds platform created an opportunity to host a stand in Berlin which was a brilliant experience.
To me, the scheme was everything that I could have asked for, the combination of excellent people in line with an excellent company was perfect to develop my skills within the HR Sector. The people within the department were amazingly helpful and whatever question or query I had, someone would be able to answer it instantly and without hesitation. The programme enabled me to gain an insight into how the HR works within Computacenter and should a further opportunity rise in the future, I would be more than happy to go back.
