    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • My time at Nissan was quite enjoyable - I got a lot of experience with new technologies and learning foundations under my belt.


  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • I felt quite valued by my team most of the time


  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • My mentor was amazing and gave me lots of support throughout the year. Everyone in my team was happy to help me when I needed question answering or some help.


  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • One of the negatives of the placement for me was that I wasn’t busy most of the time. I believe this to be down to massive budget cuts currently taking place in NMUK.


  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • I was given quite a lot of responsibility after the first few months, and was able to get on with work, as well as being trusted with production systems.


  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I believe the skills I have learned to be used widely acceoss the industry, I learned so much over the year and hope to apply it when in a grad job.


    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • At the start of the placement the morale was great amongst my team and in my office - however this changed and towards the end of my placement I saw and noticed that a lot of people weren’t happy, and a lot of contractors were cut.


  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  • I think the placement was quite well set up, I believe it could have been improved by having a 6-month rotation into another team.


  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • I was continuously promised external training, only to be let down when budgets were cut. On the other hand, internal training was quite good.


  • 10. What were the perks on your work placement?
  • Sports and Social Club

    Subsidised/Company Gym

    Above 25 days holiday

    Working from home


  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • Although I enjoyed the placement year, and am glad for the experience I got, as an IT professional I believe I would have better prospects working at an IT service provider rather than IT to support the business.


    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • 4/5

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • Very cheap area but also I live at home


  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • 4/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • 3/5
