    Responsibilities

  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • Yes. There is a huge responsibility to create and manipulate creative assets on time to help promote titles worldwide, which failing so could have serious implications. There is also a responsibility to help the finance team track spending through partially managing a budget tracker; used to note all raised purchase orders of any requests to agencies for them to complete work including localisations for example, in a financial year.

    Culture

  • 5. What was the company culture and general atmosphere like?
  • Extremely friendly and welcoming to all. The organization really cares about their employees and their welfare, evident from WB making sure I was well equipped to start my placement working from home with a computer and monitor, thoroughly trained and prepped for my role with a rigorous 3-week handover period at the start, but also through sending care packages and regularly checking in with us all and offering mental health support to ensure we’re ok working remotely. The atmosphere is fun (we publish video games after all) and quite relaxed, but at the same time everyone works extremely hard for the benefit of the titles.

Warner Bros. have been very supportive as mentioned above and I have enjoyed being a part of a tight knit team working in the creative services department.
