My marketing intern role at CityFibre was fast pace, being given different tasks/projects to help within the team. I have given my own projects such as outlining and designing a social media campaign, research such as community groups, events and bloggers which will then be later used to sponsor/advertise with. I would be tasked with different admin roles such as ordering marketing material for the different departments. I was also given data inputting tasks to help raise any issues or missed sections or projects.
During this internship I was involved with daily meetings with my line manager where we would discuss the elements within my programme plan. I had constant interactions with team members via weekly meetings and I also had the opportunity to interact with other interns working in different divisions of the company. Although I was only an intern, I was given a lot of responsibility and was given my own programme plan to conduct and present.
Overview of my role was to activate two different DWDM nodes as well as creating a presentation which encompassed everything I learnt and how to convert this technology for a non-technical member to understand. A day to day basis for me was to read multiple different articles, documents, go through presentation to learn more about this technology and how we can use it for our advantage and what steps need to be taken to allow growth of the company. In addition, I was able to join a variety of calls where people were discussing multiple factors about the progress for the new network infrastructure and any problems occurring.
I was working on a digitalisation project predominately, which involved uploading paper based documents to the online YouManage system. I did this through scanning and using a tracker that I created myself using Microsoft Excel. Furthermore, I was working with the ER team on disciplinary matters, flexible working requests and other general ER work.
I worked on the full fibre rollout in the East and West midlands. My job was to assist with the commercial management side of the project. Visiting pre-site and sectional completion walk offs, measuring the civils and fibre work carried out by the build partners. This in turn can represent an accurate application for payment for each individual site. In addition to reviewing all CE's submitted on CEMAR.
