Role Description

I really enjoyed how involved we all were in the process and that we became part of the team we were working with. We were respected as much as any other working employee.


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

I felt like I was entrusted with responsibility which definitely increased the amount I felt valued.


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

Enough that it felt I had independence. Not to the extent I was babysat rather that I was guided and mentored.


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

Without a doubt it has helped with my degree. The team I was placed in, residential valuation, was one of my more difficult modules and it has given me a good grounding in what to expect in the future.

By the end of the process, their ethos really shone through which I wasn't expecting due to the size of the company.
