    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

    5/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • My line manager has been extremely helpful throughout the year. From the start of the year I've had the opportunity to talk with senior marketing members and always have someone that I feel like I can speak to.

    3/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • At the beginning of the quarter the work can be quiet. However, this is expected. At the end of the quarter it can become busy which I prefer as I'm driven when it's busier.

    4/5

  • Throughout the year, I was given a lot of responsibility.

    4/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • The skills I received will assist me in my degree and future career as I was part of the digital team and digital will be a huge part of every business. My degree focuses on digital marketing and analytics, so having experiencing and learning in an organisation will benefit me and help me understand the theories.
