Role Description

Spend 7 weeks in a branch or commercial centre. Learn the business from the ground up. Spend time shadowing managers. Complete a business project.

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

I really enjoyed my internship. Some parts were better than others and on occasion the day-to-day work could become a bit boring. But the structure of the internship meant that we had different events to break up the 7 weeks. These events were really great and ensured we were never too bored.

6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

I now have a great idea what it would be like to work for company and this will help me a lot when choosing what to do after I graduate. The skills I developed will not assist my studies.
