The Role



The Role

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

I really enjoyed mt time at Enterprise. Right from the beginning you were given a large amount of responsibility on a day to day basis and was able to develop and progress very quickly within the organisation. It's not your stereotypical internship of making teas and coffee, you are treated like a valued member of staff


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

Everyone was always very helpful in anything you needed. No questions were ever too many to ask . When you did were your colleagues were always there to celebrate with you and congratulate you on your successes, no matter how big or small or how significant it was in the business


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

Everyone was more than helpful when it came to your personal development, they all wanted you to progress at a quick rate. Everyday you were given something new to learn within the business to make sure after your internship you left with a great knowledge of the full business


4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Everyday was different, with busy days and quiet days. the busy days were helpful in making you learn quickly by being thrown in at the deep end and having to adapt to difficult situations quickly while working as part of a a team

Everyday you were given a high level of responsibility like dealing with customer issues independently and resolving issues with little input from the management team

By taking part in the internship you got to have an insight into a business and how to run a successful business.
