    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • My placement title was HR coordinator but I was able to get involved in so much more than just HR including L&D and recruitment. This meant that every day was different and I never got bored. It was hard adjusting to full time work but my first experience working in a corporate environment couldn't have been in a better company.

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • We had weekly catchups to discuss my goals and anything I was struggling with/needed. I knew that if I had any questions or problems that I could ask and help/guidance would be given.

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • A few of us have gone out but it's hard to organize group events as there were quite a few of us. Also the local town for us to go out in doesn't have that much to offer.

    4/5

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • I think to live in/around Basingstoke is fairly expensive but luckily I could live at home and commute this year.

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • There are some bars and good pubs but could be a lot better.

    4/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • My team have organised a number of team nights out/dinners. I have also been able to attend some external training days and company events.
