I learnt all aspects of how a business operates. Full of opportunities to learn about other jobs, not just your role. Social life was amazing and the benefits were uncomparable.
I was given a lot of responsibility for an intern but this was given gradually. If you are honest, accurate and reliable you will not only be given responsibility but valued.
Every piece of work was gone through in detail and questions were ALWAYS encouraged. Even right at the end of the placement.
Dependent... The film industry is dependent on releases but there is always things to do. If you have nothing to do, ask!
A lot. But nothing you can't handle. You are encouraged to grow but only to the extent you are comfortable with. Objectives are consistently set and give you something to work towards.
I have learnt a lot about the "real business world" and covered a lot of content I can use in my exams for final year.
It is great. Very relaxed atmosphere, but the film industry is full of change so a lot going on!
In the job, the process was smooth and all my equipment was already set up. Recruitment was a little confusing but due to the recruitment environment at the time.
I am now trained in SAP, Excel and other job specific programs. I have also been involved in training other employees in these tools.
Very dependent if there is job roles available, but networking will hopefully give more potential.
A huge amount of interns and you will spend a lot of time with them! Great people who will understand what you are going through. Working in Central London, lots of things to do after work.
I lived at home for my placement, but I know others found it expensive.
It's London so absolutely amazing!
There is meditation at lunch, workouts in the morning, running clubs, free coffee...
