    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • An unbelievable experience working with industry leading marketeers! The variety of work gave an incredibly deep insight into the entertainment industry.


  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • Given real responsibility and treated as an equal from day one. My team and the wider department treat interns incredibly well, show by the company being the highest entertainment company in The Top 100 Undergraduate Employers and 1st in marketing and advertising.


  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • Supported throughout, never did I feel abandoned or lost. Every member of the department was approachable, regardless of their seniority.


  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • The perfect balance. From deep involvement in global phenomenons such as Joker, to red carpet events and publicity tours, there was always a job to be done.


  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • Given responsibility on both sides of the digital marketing team, from paid media activity to organic management. There is full expectation and trust placed in all interns to carry out tasks.


  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • Skills, both professional and personal, will be used in my studies and career. As well as learning the job role, Warner provide all interns professional skills sessions; such as public speaking and software based sessions.


    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • The general atmosphere of the office was vibrant, friendly and hard-working. The open plan and modern layout feeds directly into the industry leading and team ethic that encompasses Warner Bros. marketing. Every staff member is approachable and this allows interns to feel at ease and confident when making contributions to their team.


  • 8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
  • Incredibly well organised. Warner Bros. ensures interns receive training beyond just their department, equipping us with skills to further our careers; such as public speaking and software based sessions. Warner Bros. have a well established placement scheme, shown by their high position in the RateMyPlacement Top 100 Undergraduate Employers and 1st position in marketing and advertising placements.


  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • Warner Bros. ensures interns receive training beyond just their department, equipping us with skills to further our careers; such as public speaking and software based sessions. These sessions are led by well qualified professionals who give expert advice on professional and personal growth. Regular speaker sessions with inspiring industry leaders are also held.

  • Sports and Social Club

    Subsidised/Company Gym

    Company Parties/Events

    Staff Sales/Staff Shop

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • Whilst Warner Bros. has no direct graduate scheme, they do hire interns into the business. As such, those that do return to the business will be in a job position above a grad scheme. This shows the trust and expectation placed in interns to handle large responsibility straight away and it's great to see interns make this transition.


    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • There was a great social scene. This included team lunches and events, as well as intern only socials. With over 40 interns and apprentices, the social scene is vibrant and the office is well positioned to enjoy central London! There are also lunch-time sports teams, including a great football team.


  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • Being in central London (Holborn) is always going to be expensive. However, the salary that Warner Bros. offers compensates for this. With Soho and Covent Garden a 5 minute walk away, the social opportunities are endless! Placement years should be enjoyed and seen as an opportunity to explore London too, don't let it go to waste!


  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • The location of the Warner Bros. office in central London (Holborn) is prime. Soho and Covent Garden are a 5 minute walk away, full of great bars and pubs for after work socialising! The intern group was great at organising nights out and get togethers on weekends, so the social element was really enjoyable.


  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • Great opportunities for out of work activities. I personally joined the Warner Bros. Football Club, where we played regularly against local offices. These provided a great opportunity to network alongside departments that I didn't regularly encounter. Other events included Media Fight Night, where I got to support my VP who was fighting, as well as raise money for a great charity.
