The level of support I was given by my manager was fantastic. I could go to her with any problem or query I had no matter how big or small.

The workload was perfect. I never had too much on my plate so that I felt overwhelmed, however there was always something to be getting on with. No two tasks are the same within the job and I found that prioritising my outstanding tasks in a to-do-list was the perfect way to manage my workload and efficiently manage other people's expectations.
