Role Description

Communication Launch Change Content
Assisting with the PKR Steering Project

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

It was really good, I had a really interesting experience even though the job was not as hands on as I was expecting.


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

I was really valued, they relied on my help and my role within the team was crucial and carried responsibility which was rewarding.


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

My manager was very supportive if I came to him with questions/problems however it was up to me to do this. I wasn't babysat which was good.


4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

It varied from day to day. At the beginning I was very busy but as I got better at my job it became more manageable.


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

A reasonable amount. It was enough to make me feel valued but not so much pressure that it would overwhelm me.


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

The excel and management skills I developed were really good, however the job was not specifically related to Chemical Engineering in any way.


The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Really good, the team were a great bunch and I really felt well integrated


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

I think it was ok, it was fairly well organised but it would have been nicer to get more experiences in a wider range of areas (more like the grad scheme does)


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

They didn't really invest any training courses in me. The only development support was from my manager or other team members.


10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Staff Sales/Staff Shop
  • Above 25 days holiday
  • Healthcare/Dental

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

I would like to come back and work here as it is a really good community feeling.



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

Yeah there was a great social scene with a large bunch (50~) of other students which made life very entertaining!


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

Although the socialsing was good, it was very expensive. Oxford is the most expensive area to live in and you really noticed it when you looked at your bank account!


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

Not bad, expensive but fairly decent.


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

Yeah there were sports and activities available as there are two unis based in Oxford. People from work also play badminton, football, etc.
