The Role



The Role

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

During my 12 month placement, I enjoyed every aspect of the job. The most enjoyable part would have had to have been working with such a great team of people that always looked out for each other.


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

I always felt very valued as a colleague. I was given the same responsibilities and respect as anyone else in the company and never once looked down on for ‘just being a placement student’.


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

I was always supported with any task. Loads of training is provided and support is always there. I was also given a mentor for extra support and to help me settle in.

It was always a fast paced work environment but in the best way. There was never a dull minute and always something to do - which really helped see the day in faster.


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

Once I was comfortable with everything I was given as much responsibility as I wanted. You are given the same responsibilities as everyone else in the company which makes you feel important.


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

The skills I learned such as customer service, sales, leadership and so many more will not only help me in my final year of studies but will help me in future job prospects!

After completing my 12 month placement I now have the peace of mind that once I graduate I have a job waiting for me.



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

As a lot of people start together and receive training together you build really great friendships and take comfort that you are at the same stage of the process and can ask questions.


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

I lived at home whilst on placement but most Enterprise branches are in great locations near other business.


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

I was working at the airport location for most of my placement


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

Loads of events such as mini football tournaments were encouraged. There was also many charity events where everyone got involved.
