    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • I enjoyed my time at Computacenter and I was given lots of amazing opportunities such as the ITIL Foundation course and many other training courses. CC is a very friendly company and everyone is easy to approach.


  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • I was very lucky to be put in such an amazing team! We all got along so well and they became like my family. I was treated as a colleague and not a university student.


  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • My support here at CC has been very helpful with monthly 1-2-1 meetings with my Manager. I was given a training plan and objectives to follow throughout my placement.


  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • I was busy every day with my usual BAU activities, and I was constantly challenged by my manager as I was hungry to learn!


  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • I was given a good amount of responsibility. My manager and team really trusted me and involved me in many new projects which really motivated me to do well in my placement. If you decide to do your placement at Computacenter, you will be seen as a colleague and you will be treated that way.


  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • My skills have definitely developed this year, and most importantly my soft skills. I have many transferable skills due to my changing job role. When I first applied to a placement I didn’t expect to receive half of the opportunities I have had throughout my time here. I have been treated in the same regard as any other employee would and I have been given the same (if not more!) opportunities My insight and knowledge into the graduate market has increased seven-fold and I feel as though I have matured a lot over this year.
