    5/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • My managers helped me to settle in and gain the most value out of the 13 months. The took me to senior leadership meetings and gave me exposure to meetings/people I didn't expect to be or meet.

    5/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • The responsibility of my day to day role grew over the time I was there and in no time at all I was doing the role of other members of the team. This kept me very busy but I was also given free reign to organise meetings with other departments within Computacenter where needed.

  • There were oppourtunities to get involved but if Im honest there weren't as many sports teams as hoping, however games were still organised regularly.
