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

The team culture was great - my colleagues went out of their way to help me and made me feel extremely valued. They included me as much as possible and really made me feel like I was part of the team - I was very happy with my team throughout the internship.

3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

Support was always given when needed. There was always someone willing to help when stuck. My supervisor was extremely approachable and and gave plenty of guidance throughout - the various feedback I received at various points in the internship was very helpful in help identify areas I could improve on for the internship.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Extremely busy. Whilst there were ups and downs, I generally had to work hard and had the right amount of work to keep me busy. As a result, each day passed by extremely quickly, as did the internship!

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

Lots - I was doing real-life work all the time and so I had plenty of responsisbility. My work was then checked which was reassuring to make sure it was correct and any errors could be identified.

6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

I am yet to go back to university and apply my new skills, however I am extremely confident that they will be put to good use in my studies. In particular, my time management has improved vastly and I think this will certainly help when balancing my studies at university.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

The atmosphere was great - people were happy to be there and clearly enjoyed the work, but were also working hard and allowed for a great working environment. There was a respect between colleagues that really allowed each other to concentrate and knucke down.

10/10

8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

Very-well organised from start to finish.

9/10

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

The training week at the start of the internsip gave us the adequate prepartion we needed so that we could start real-life work for the next eight weeks. The learning curve was steep and as a result you learnt lots quickly. There wre also internal projects to participate in throughout the internship which allowed us to develop/learn in areas that were not part of our day-to-day work (the work was so varied and so there was no way you could participate/learn it all in just eight weeks).

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • There were no perks with this Internship
