  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • I have felt extremely supported throughout the entirety of my internship, both from the internship team and colleagues from other areas of the business. No ask is too big and other employees have been happy for interns to reach out to them personally via email and answer any questions about their job role.

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • Support and guidance was given every step of the way and clear briefs were given for all my projects as part of the supporting communities team. There were regular drop in sessions that enabled interns to ask any questions, and any issues were always followed up and sorted by management.

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • The 1st week wasn't that busy, but weeks 3 and 4 so far have been very busy with project presentations and the food love story project. I've enjoyed the increased workload, but I also like how Tesco values workalike balance so there is always the opportunity for breaks throughout the day.

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • Not loads of responsibility to be in charge and the tasks were very research and project based. However this is expected due to the changed programme as a result of the coronavirus.
