    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • I really enjoyed my placement year at Hays, I was given a a lot of responsibility and felt like I was part of the team straight away. The workload was quite high but this meant there was never a boring moment and I felt very involved. Except they did make me redundant during coronavirus instead of putting the interns on furlough...which wasn't great.

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I developed many skills and my confidence increased throughout the year. My approach to work has changed and if anything it has made me work harder and I can now apply this to my final year at university.
