Responsible for coordinating and facilitating weekly final stage interviews, holding feedback meetings and collating and publishing candidate results.
I have learned how to be more confident when using various different platforms and programmes such as Microsoft Excel, Zoom, Microsoft Teams etc.
Absolutely, really are part of the team here at FDM (feels like not even a placement student). Lots of responsibility given pretty much straight away - meeting tight deadlines etc.
Have been given lots of support and guidance from my team and manager as well as wider teams in other regions. This has been available due to remote working whilst going through the pandemic.
Everyone is really helpful and friendly. Culture seems good but due to pandemic unfortunately not been able to fully immersive in to team night out etc.
I have enjoyed my placement and loved getting to meet lots of new people and build friendships.
Be ready to get stuck in and work hard, you will have lots of opportunities to develop. Don't be afraid to speak up and get involved.
Placement Year (10 Months+)
