    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • I would deal with customers, both on front and back end, whilst making sure I balanced my own captaincy area within the business. A lot of time was spent on the road, but I would also deal with admin tasks whilst in the office. I would book customers in for replacement vehicles whilst also helping manage corporate accounts and finding new ways of driving our performance


    Skills

  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • My customer service and confidence skills have developed tenfold, as having to deal with difficult customers can really push you to your potential. My communication skills have also gotten significantly better due to the high volume of customers i spoke to. Since having my own captaincy area my management and leadership skills are far better than they were before

    Responsibilities

  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • I was instantly given a lot of responsibility, as was given a captaincy area where it was my responsibility to ensure that I gained results, but also that the team succeeded too. We are given free reign to do our training folder and work, encouraging us to find a good balance


  • Please rate how meaningful the work you were doing was

    Support & Guidance

  • 4. How much support and guidance did you receive during your placement / internship?
  • I received quite a bit of support from one of my colleagues, who was always there to help and improve my personal and professional growth. The higher-ups of the company are all easily accessible, however I think we could do with more face to face training sessions
