    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • Attending conferences & webinars and networking with D&I professionals inspires new ideas on best practice which we can implement at Pfizer. I the develop and lead new projects based on best practice cases or just my new, creative ideas. Projects come in different forms and it could be developing training resources, collating existing resources into accessible PDFs or facilitating workshops to give colleagues the skills they need to excel in their careers.


    Skills

  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • You get given lots of responsibility in this role and quickly learn skills associated with project management. Not only do you learn how to lead projects but you also learn how to effectively engage and communicate with all stakeholders involved. We use a test learn and adapt approach so ideas don't always work so you really develop strong resilience skills. You always have lots of plates spinning so good organisation is key!

    Responsibilities

  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • You are given lots of responsibility from the day you join - you really are treated as a Pfizer Colleague rather than 'the Intern' and because of this you are expected to preform and meet your deliverables on time. My projects are lead solely by me and whilst my manager provides feedback and approval at key stages, she doesn't really get involved unless I need support - the success is driven by me.

    Support & Guidance

  • 4. How much support and guidance did you receive during your placement / internship?
  • Support is always available - Pfizer has a great culture whereby I feel comfortable approaching anyone for help/support and regardless of title they will be willing to help. I am encouraged to take smart risks and push myself out of my comfort zone but I know that should I need any support I can always go to my Manager for help.

    Culture

  • 5. What was the company culture and general atmosphere like?
  • The culture is so supportive - all colleagues are really friendly and open to spending some time talking about their career journey and providing advice. It's somewhere where although we all have titles, we are encouraged to work equally (you aren't treated as just 'the Intern). If I need support or involvement from senior leaders I am encouraged to approach them directly rather than going through the chain of command.

    Your Impressions

  • 6. To what extent did you enjoy your placement / internship?
  • Loved the placement - there are so many opportunities to learn and grow both personally and professionally. I really enjoyed that I have been give so much responsibility and that my ideas have been seriously considered. I still think its pretty cool that the projects I have worked on are going to have a lasting impact on the closure of the Gender Pay Gap - even once I leave.

  • 8. What advice would you give to others applying to Pfizer
  • Go for it! It's been a really great placement and has really helped me see that this is something I can see myself doing long term. Be authentic and genuine throughout the application process and speak confidently about your achievements (but don't waffle!)
