The Role

Role Description

The job description varied hugely on a project to project basis. My project involved project managing website design. Initially my tasks included the production of presentation materials, a research project and assisting an project manager with tasks such as taking minutes, writing project deliverable documents and updating powerpoint presentations. Towards the end of my internship I was given sole responsibility for project managing 3 websites, including preparing a UK wide physician portal for it's first showcase to senior stakeholders and key sponsors. I led daily meetings with clients and the offshore website build team and wrote website content.

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

I was lucky to be given a large amount of responsibility and autonomy and was able to perform the job of a second year analyst so I felt that I was able to really add value. A lot of attention was paid to my personal development and I was given a decent level of continuous support.

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

My degree has no relevance to real life so it wasn't much help in that respect. However my project management skills, technical knowledge and Microsoft office skills improved greatly and will certainly be useful in my working life.
