The placements provides me valuable insight into the industry in quite an enjoyable way- great learning experience and opportunities for personal development in a well-balanced work atmosphere. It is great to see yourself improving and growing on a daily basis while being supported by the people who you work with!
I am thoroughly enjoying my placement at RCI. As an intern you are treated equally and everyone is extremely welcoming. During my first 3 months, I have already noticed myself progressing and have learned vast amounts about marketing, which I know I can apply in my final year at university.
In lunch time, canteen has game to play (Xbox , table football etc). The environment I am working at is very flexible, relax. Sometime you can leave early and sometime you cannot. During the first week into the office, we also get to introduced to all other employees and meet with other intern.
I am very much enjoying my time here at RCI, I am involved in a variety of areas within HR, including recruitment, well-being and training. As HR is a relatively small department within RCI I work closely with my colleagues which makes the learning process a lot easier. I am provided with a lot of responsibility; managing my own projects and liaising with employees from a number of different departments. I believe my contribution is greatly appreciated by my team, really making me feel like any other employee.
I am currently 3 months into my placement at RCI and so far it has been an excellent experience. I have already developed a number of skills in my time here- particularly when it comes to using excel and organising my time. Everyone at RCI is extremely welcoming and approachable which really helped me settle in quickly.
As HR is quite a small department, I work closely with all members of my team, helping me to learn about all aspects of HR from recruitment to training. I am also given responsibility to manage my own projects, which involve working with people from a number of different departments. As a result of this, I have managed to develop a number of skills, particularly my organisation, time management and teamwork skills. What I enjoy most about RCI is the culture. People are always willing to help, and answer questions, and your contribution is really valued. As well as this, they are always things going in the office which encourage teamwork, from Bake-Offs to Sports Competitions.
I was pleasantly surprised when I joined RCI Financial Services. I expected an extremely corporate environment however RCI has a very approachable and warm culture, allowing me to be easily integrated into the company. The role I had in marketing was also extremely diverse - so I never found myself doing the same thing on a daily basis!
