It was very enjoyable. I met so many special people, who I know for a fact I will keep in touch with and I got to step out of my comfort zone and learn and develop new skills. The people definitely made the experience for me. There was a great work/life balance where I was able to socialise during lunch and after work. I was also given the responsibility I don't think I would be given anywhere else.
I loved my placement year and gained so much in a professional capacity as well as personal. I took on a number of tasks and headed up a number of projects which I was given total autonomy over and yet provided the support when I needed it. The best thing about my year was the people I got to meet and work with, it was a small team but that gave me the opportunity to make a big impact.
I enjoyed the placement quite a lot, the work environment was helpful and friendly, which is in my opinion the main condition for a great placement year. I also enjoyed the freedom of opportunities you can choose, during this year I have tried a lot of different areas, from basic software testing to data science pipelines in Spark. Such opportunities are great for anyone who hasn't yet differentiate his goals and main interests in the field related to IT.
As I was my first ever proper office job, it was very enjoyable experience as I got to meet tons of new people and I got to step out of my comfort zone and experiences new things. I really enjoyed the work/life balance that I got, it was really nice to have time to do all the things that I wanted to do after work like going to socialise with either my friends from home and university or with some of my work colleagues.
I absolutely loved my placement year at Egress and I have learnt so many skills that you can only ever learn while in industry. I have been involved in different projects throughout my placement, all allowing me to gain more knowledge in different areas. Above and beyond anything its the people at Egress which allowed me to enjoy my time there so much. Everyone is so lovely but also very good at what they do and you can learn so much from just talking to the people around you - everyone has some expertise to share!
I’ve definitely enjoyed my time at Egress as a placement student. Not only is my work as a marketing placement always varied and interesting with tasks ranging from putting together an internal newsletter to being on an event stand, but the atmosphere is also good fun, with monthly socials including activities such as sports day and pub quizzes.
I greatly enjoyed my placement year. The work environment was friendly and welcoming, and my colleagues were a pleasure to work with. I learnt an incredible amount in such a short space of time. The work done was consistently fun and challenging, and I rarely saw work as a chore. I believe the skills and knowledge gained from this will be incredibly useful in the future.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Egress. I felt that I was a valued member of the team and was given work that was both enjoyable and challenging. The company is also very sociable meaning that there were always lots of activities going on at lunch or after work
Enjoyed every moment of my year placement at Egress and will be sad to leave and go back to university life. The team in the Barnsley office were brilliant from day one making every day in the workplace extremely enjoyable. Company events and socials were also very enjoyable to be a part of.
I have really enjoyed my placement at Egress. I have learned a lot about HR and had the opportunity to gain exposure to a range of roles and responsibilities during my time here. Being in a small HR team and working directly under the Chief People Officer at Egress has been a great experience and one that has taught me a lot. Being part of a small team meant my contribution mattered and i was given a lot of responsibility. I was definitely treated more as a permanent member of staff as opposed to a placement student which i liked. The culture at Egress also made it a very enjoyable place to work - we had fully funded regular socials, free breakfast, open plan office and lots more! I have met some great people through working at Egress who i will keep in contact with and some amazing friends!
I felt very privilege to be working in the finance department of Egress, as the placement programme that Egress offers is fantastic. You are treated as an actual employee of the company rather than as a placement student which is perfect as you receive excellent work exposure. The placement offers plenty of opportunity for you to develop and learn new skills. I would highly recommend the financial placement scheme, along with the other placement schemes that Egress offers.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my placement here at Egress. With a fun, relaxed and welcoming culture, everyday was a challenging but enjoyable experience. By being apart of the marketing team, I was exposed to a variety of areas such as internal and external events, email marketing comms and PR. I also was continuously offered opportunities to develop my skills in a number of personal projects such as managing Egress' social media platforms and writing press releases.
I enjoyed working in Egress, they gave me a lot of work to do to so I was not sitting around doing nothing. I was made sure that I was doing the correct job by my manager an often was brought to the side to evaluate my work and also give me pointers on where I needed to improve. Even when I finished my work that I was acquired to do so, I was always given more to do/learn to enhance my skills.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here at Egress, finding it both a challenging and interesting experience throughout. During my placement, I was provided with lots of opportunities to get involved in numerous important roles as well as being given the responsibility to drive my own personal projects. Some of these projects revolved around areas such as; recruitment, benefits, general HR admin and many others. Each working day offered different experiences and gave me exposure to the numerous elements of HR.
