Role Description

Planning, booking and implementing media campaigns across EMEA for theatrical releases.

    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • This was the best year of my life. I had an amazing team who were friendly and welcoming and was given real responsibilities and had creative input in campaigns. I also made friends for life with many of the other interns at WB.

    5/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • I really fell like my team and department valued my opinion whether this be in a team meeting reviewing trailers etc. or getting to lead a creative brainstorm session for a campaign.

    5/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • Particularly early on, I would have regular catch ups with my team to ensure that I was happy and knew how to handle the tasks in hand. As I became more comfortable and experienced in the role, I was able to ask for support when I needed it, rather than having scheduled catch up sessions.

    5/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • Usually I was at a good level of busy, where I could get my tasks done without being bored however there were periods of time when it was extremely busy - i.e. around a film's release - but these were a great time to work on time management skills.

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • By the end of the placement I was leading media campaigns across EMEA for multiple films. I was the main point of contact between markets, agencies and vendors and I had the chance to have real input into the creative elements of campaigns.

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I have developed so many skills this year including time management, organisation, team work and communication. I had the chance to present in meetings and manage multiple campaigns at once. These are skills that I will use in future roles, my final year at university and in daily life.

    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • The atmosphere in my department is generally great. The team gets along well and we're able to have fun together. We have been to a number of lunches and events together which helps to bond as a team. It is a comfortable environment.

  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  • It was great - the handover was smooth and I was set up on the systems before I arrived so I was able to get stuck in fairly quickly.

    5/5

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • I was invited to attend a few learning sessions with vendors and partners that we worked with. I found these very interesting as they were from a different perspective. We also had a number of intern training sessions throughout the year which were helpful.

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • Past interns are often the first point of call when there is a job opening so you definitely have better future employment prospects.

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • I have made friends for life with my fellow interns and we often met up outside of work for social events and became very close throughout the year. I also got on very well with my team and would like to stay in contact with them.

    5/5

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • London itself is fairly expensive but you can always find places to fit your budgets such as free events, happy hour, student discounts etc.

    3/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • There are some great bars, clubs, restaurants and other activities (i.e. bowling, ping pong, theatre, comedy clubs). There is always something to do.

    4/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • There were lots of activities, both organised through work and outside of it. We also attended a number of events organised by vendors that we worked with which are a great opportunity to have fun and network. I took part in a sleepout with a number of other interns for a charity that our company is involved in, there have been quiz nights and screenings as well.
