About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

I thoroughly enjoyed my week here, I felt like I was part of the team and everyone really went out of their way to make my week as interesting and varied as possible so I could see all aspects of it.


2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

I felt very valued here, they would always involve me in conversation and ask about me. Also I was given real life tasks to do which made me feel like part of the team. As well as this I would be taken on site visits and everything we were doing would be explained in detail to me.


3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

I had so much guidance, before every task I was set I would be sat down and they would go through what I'm supposed to be doing and why I have got to do that, with them taking valuable time out of their day. I would then be set one to do for myself, which I would send back to them and then receive feedback from them on how I had done.


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

The skills I have learnt are all ones which I will need later once I have finished at university. Therefore these skills are extremely important.


The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

The week was planned out thoroughly, with events for everyone on the programme to get to know each other, as well as being able to meet grads and directors within the company which all facilitates your networking. The talks throughout the week also helped you get an idea of what the different departments do, allowing you to work out which sparked your interest.


6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

The atmosphere was always good, everyone was always willing to help and have a laugh, as well as taking the work seriously and getting it done. Was overall a great experience.


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

They invested a lot of time into us, with the department talks, to the meet and greets, to the drinks with grads. It all made us feel very welcome and as if they valued and wanted us to be here.


8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

I was given tasks that other people were doing or would have done if I had not, which meant it applied to the true tasks. Also being in the room with everyone working made me understand what everyones days are like.


9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?

It massively made me understand the company has a great culture, the fact that so many people have been here for such a long time also proves this.


10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

Very valuable, it solidifies the fact that this is what I want to go into and has helped me decide what areas of property I am more interested in than others
