The Role

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

There are many great people that I was able to work with which are the main reason as to why I enjoyed my placement. There were struggles as you would always expect, but support and mentoring (and good friends) made it an enjoyable experience.

2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

Every person shows that you're valued in a different way. There a point awards & thank you awards that give you the ability to be recognised. Without these, I don't think that I would feel as valued as I do today.

3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

Due to the seniority of my manager it was hard to be able to really get the full support that other interns got. I did however receive support from my peers and the senior managers on the sites that I worked at.

7/10

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

For the amount of things that I do I am too busy. Things got forgotten about and it's hard to think that one person can manage all that work. It has however given me great skills and tasks that I can say on my CV and for future jobs that I have completed.

6/10

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

So much! I was practically doing a lot of things that my manager didn't even know took place. There are a number of tasks that I get asked on how to do.

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

For this placement I know that I am going to be able to go into the career that I want with the skill set I now have from this placement.

8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

With out intern programme manager leaving it was a struggle to know who to go to & talk to. Temps were in and out but there was one that was really organised and was able to get everything done on time properly.

8/10

9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

There is a bespoke training plan from an external facilitator that comes in every month pretty much on soft skills and competencies such as presentation skills.

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

The company is great, but their locations are in the middle of no where which makes it less appealing. I've learnt a lot and know that there are more things that I could learn with the company.

8/10

Social

12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

When we did eventually meet up we all had fun, but we never met up that much.

7/10

13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

Living near Cheltenham was great as that was our night life & being close to Bristol was good too for the weekends. That also came with a price tag though.

6/10

14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

In the local area not great, but moving over to other areas such as Cheltenham, Bristol etc. meant that we were able to still enjoy night life.

5/10

15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

Things would be put on the notice board but it was nothing that was explained very well do nothing happened.
