  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • I have been given great support throughout, my line manager and buddy made so much effort to get me involved in all services within the team and as a non-cog they have taught me so much along the way. The Early Careers team have also been very helpful throughout the whole process straight from the time that you apply.

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • I have been really busy over the six weeks, there haven’t been any moments where I’ve felt bored or didn’t have something to do (but I didn’t feel too over loaded). When I was finished with tasks I felt able to ask the team if anyone wanted a hand with anything and they’d always be keen to get me involved.

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • I feel like I was given a lot of responsibility. Consisting of helping to write valuations reports, writing market commentaries, doing demographic analysis and creating marketing brochures etc. I wasn't ever doing dull admin jobs, instead I was actively involved in my teams projects.
