    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • Very very much. We were given so much responsibility that totally surpassed my expectations of a normal internship.

    5/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • Very much. Interns are a hugely important part of the team and, in my department, we made up a sizeable proportion.

    5/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • Everyone was so helpful and friendly, even extending beyond my immediate team. I went for coffees with loads of people across the company to find out more about what they did which was invaluable.

    4/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • It came in waves, but I always had something to work on. We had a good balance of regular tasks and ad hoc requests.

    5/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • Loads. I ran 4 regular quarterly reports and also was given a variety of ad hoc tasks to do. I was the only intern in my department that bridged 2 teams, so I had a fair amount of work.

    5/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I studied English at uni so it wasn't hugely related, but has been incredibly useful as a starting point for a career in media.

    5/5

  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  • Really well organised by my team, although they really threw us in at the deep end! Probably the best way to learn, though.

    5/5

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • Not amazing in terms of career progression. I would have preferred a few more opportunities to network or learn about opportunities for people starting off their careers.

    Healthcare/Dental

    Travel loan

    3/5

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • Highly appealing - my internship has been extended for 2 months and I'm really keen to stay as long as possible. The careers portal is really helpful, as is everyone in HR, so I am optimistic.

    4/5

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • There are so many interns and we had lots of events to get to know each other. I've made really great friends this year.

    5/5

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • Our offices are in central London so it is super expensive. Going for drinks after work was never cheap but always fun.

    1/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • Our offices are in central London so it is super expensive. Going for drinks after work was never cheap but always fun.

  • Yes - lots of sports teams, bake sales, screening etc.

    5/5
