The Role

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

the job gave me a lot of experience. the internship programme itself offered a very large range of insights, talks, overviews etc which were great as they broke up the day a little bit so you weren't sat behind the desk all day every day which i really liked and appreciated.

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

i had a great team, although it was really very small. my team were really helpful, understanding and encouraging the whole time. no question was stupid and they seemed to really care about me doing well throughout the programme which felt great and pushed me to work even harder to show my gratitude.

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

my manager was really supportive, perhaps more so than others from what i heard. she didn't spoon feed me but explained al the tasks she gave me in detail before hand and gave me a loose reign, but still answering questions if i had them. i got given a lot of responsibility and independence in my work

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

i was busy 70% of the time when sat at my desk. the internship also encouraged you to network and find out more about other departments too, so you weren't chained to your desk all day and had free reign so figure out your own schedule. some days you leave later than others

5/10

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

i was given a lot of responsibility, especially in the second half of the internship as i knew what i was doing more. from day one though my manager gave me tasks she knew would improve my general understanding so that i could do tasks later on that were meaningful and impactful

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

i study languages at university so i did not really gain any technical skills that are useful to my degree. however, there were loads of online trainings you could do if you were motivated, like learning how to code VBA. my microsoft office skills improved vastly, especially powerpoint and excel

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

i had to move office floor during the internship so the people sat around me were not in my team or wider team, so i didn't really have much contact with them. some people were not very friendly if you were not in their team or if you were 'back office' and they were front

6/10

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

the internship was really well organised and they had really thought out the programme. they also listened to our suggestions, and because of this added additional business overviews that some interns had requested to give us what we wanted which was greta. they also checked in on us regularly which felt nice

10/10

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

the firm really care about your career progression and offer loads of opportunities, both related to your job and un related. for example i go t the chance to volunteer for the alzheimers society whilst on my internship, as well as volunteer for trees4cities as they want you to gain as many skills as possible

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Company Parties/Events
  • Healthcare/Dental

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

the future job prospects for this company are really quite good, they have a well-tailored scheme for graduates which has a very attractive salary and benefits. the working hours are not so appealing but that's normal for the type of industry they are in. i would definitely like to work there

8/10

Social

12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

the social scene among interns was vibrant. every day we met for lunch or coffees, and went for drinks etc every week. the internship itself also hosted intern-wide events from all different sectors so you got to mingle with loads of interns from your division and others. it was all free too which was great

7/10

13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

the cost of living was extortionate and puts you off living thee slightly. they had a firm canteen which was good, and had a very varied price range so you could eat cheaply if you wanted or have an extravagant lunch every day. the accommodation took half my salary, and transport costs were horrible

14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
