Role Description

Supporting the sales analysts

    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • It was a great insight into the corporate side of business in a FTSE 250 company.

    4/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • Highly - the work I was given felt like it added value to the team and the business at large.

    5/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • I was given support whenever I asked for it, and I was regularly asked as well if there was anything I needed help with.

    5/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • It varied day-to-day - but I was never bored! Some days I did have to stay considerably later than I expected to just to get everything done but this was rare.

    4/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • With specific tasks, I had sole responsibility to plan, deliver and present work. Within the regular reporting, this was more of a team effort.

    3/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • The Excel training week was brilliant and so helpful. I think the development of my networking skills will help me beyond this internship the most.

    5/5

    3/5

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

    1/5
