  1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  2. I really enjoyed my work placement at Enterprise Holdings. Being in the Revenue Management department, I was constantly challenged and pushed to help me achieve the best of my ability alongside enjoying my day to day tasks which were constantly changing. The working environment was extremely nice and I was made to feel welcomed by all other colleagues.

  3. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  4. I was made to feel extremely valued by my other colleagues. Many of which I was extremely close to both inside and outside of the workplace. All employees made me feel welcome throughout my internship and I always felt as if I could go to them for support when required.

  5. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  6. Both my direct line manager and upper management were available to go to for guidance and support when needed. In the rare event of someone being temporarily too busy to assist, I was always pointed in the right direction to help solve my query. All staff maintain the motto 'our doors are always open' which is very much true.

  7. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  8. I was constantly kept busy with changing tasks on a daily basis however I never felt that I was ever too busy. I had a very good balance throughout my placement year. In the rare event of having a
    very heavy load of work, my colleagues were always there to assist if necessary.

  9. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  10. During my placement, I was given the same amount of responsibility as the permanent employees on my team. I was given my own markets to revenue manage and I was regularly given solo tasks with deadlines, gradually increasing in responsibility over my placement. I was even trusted with the responsibility of assisting to train up new employees.

  11. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  12. Having used so much of Microsoft Excel over my placement, the amount of skills I developed on this programme will help me in the remainder of my degree and all future roles. Furthermore, I will be able to apply my communication and networking skills to all walks of life. Finally, my time-management skills have increased greatly alongside my attention to detail.

  13. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  14. Working in a very nice and modern workplace, employee morale was very high. I had a very good relationship with my surrounding employees and as a result we had a really good atmosphere in the office. We were always having fun alongside being able to do our jobs as required.

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

  17. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  18. I was regularly given and able to attend training courses by both my fellow colleagues and external guests.

I also had a personalised mapped out training course upon the start of my placement.

  21. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  22. I plan to return to Enterprise Holdings part time throughout the final year of my university whilst I am not studying. I also have plans to return to Enterprise Holdings upon graduation at the end of my final year at University in the same role after the success of my placement.

  23. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  24. Yes there was. I regularly was invited to after work drinks and meals both after work and on weekends. With my team we regularly attended external events outside of work and I was even in the Enterprise six a side football team playing once a week. The other interns were also very social!

  25. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  26. Enterprise Holdings European Headquarters are located in Egham, Surrey. Being so close to London the cost of living is extremely high. Alongside this, local bars, pubs, shops, and even restaurants as well as ones closer to London were very expensive which at times made socialising in the area fairly expensive.

    3/10

  27. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  28. There was very little nightlife in the Egham area itself despite there being Royal Holloway University close by. However despite this, Egham is surrounded by places such as Richmond, Kingston and Windsor which are all known for having good night life. We regularly commuted to these towns for nights out in the area.

    5/10

  29. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  30. I was encouraged upon joining Enterprise Holdings to join the health and well being society which provided free fitness sessions three times a week. This was alongside multiple other available societies that I could join. I also got involved in the Enterprise six a side football team which provided me with more fitness opportunities outside of work.

  31. In addition to these questions, is there any extra information you would like to leave about your experiences on your work placement that other students may be interested in?
