4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I was busy on a daily basis. I had tasks to do on a constant basis and always starting new projects given by my manager. Some periods of the placement year were a lot more busy than others but I would say it was a nice balance.

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

I was given a fair amount of responsibility. I had taken lead on a couple weekly meetings and had to present to the senior management team. I also helped a large amount during our CEO visit.

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 have learnt and enhanced during this placement are skills which I am able to carry into my final year at university. I feel as though I have become more able to work under pressure and meet deadlines. I have also got myself into a routine which I hope to continue as I go into my final year!!

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

General atmosphere in the office is vibrant. However, when there is work to be completed you tend to not disturb anyone and we just get on with our own work. There is a time and place to have a laugh now and again.
