Role Description

Planning and buying media for a number of clients

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

I really enjoyed my internship - I was given the responsibility to flourish


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

Extremely valued, I have always felt welcome as soon as I came through the door. They made sure I was settled and has been a great environment to work in.


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

As I previously had no experience, I was given the support that I needed. Training is a massive part of this company too, and I felt that I have been nurtured.


4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

To start with I wasn't extremely busy but then as I demonstrated my capabilities I became much busier. This was great and I could always say no to work if my workload became too much.


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

Similarly, to start with not a huge amount purely because of my lack of experience but when I began to prove myself I was given a great deal of responsibility.


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

I will use my skills for the rest of my life, it had been a great learning experience and I fitted in extremely well in line with the company's values.


The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

The general atmosphere is that if you do your work and you do it well, you can have as much fun as you like. It's brilliant, it makes me want to work hard, not because I have to but because I want to.


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

Brilliantly, they treat you as if you are a full-time employee and get you stuck in. They make sure you have enough work to do too.


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

Personal training is a massive part of the company, they invest heavily in training sessions every week which you are encouraged to attend. Most of which are extremely helpful.


10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Flexi Time
  • Above 25 days holiday
  • Working from home

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

Extremely appealing, so much so I am now working here because of my successful internship.



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

The social scene for the whole company is great, you're not made to feel like an intern, just another member of staff


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

Expensive, but London is expensive anywhere. Covent Garden is no different but it's an extremely fun place to work.


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

Nightlife in and around Covent Garden is also decent - I'm looking forward to discovering more and more bars and clubs around.


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

You can get yourself involved if you want, but personally I haven't.
