  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • Day-to-day my role consisted of speaking internally with my team following up on projects and their status as well as contacting customers on behalf of my colleagues to arrange meetings about their project. Also, I would manage the points budgets of all our customers making sure we do not over run on the budget as well as creating new projects with customer that had remaining budget from previous projects.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • Since starting my placement I have developed my customer service skills when writing emails to customers as something I had not had much experience in before. My technical knowledge since the training month has developed significantly and now understand different types of technical services we can offer alongside our system. My time management skills have improved as I have been managing my own time as well as the three consultant's time too.

  • 5. What was the company culture and general atmosphere like?

The atmosphere in the company is supportive where everyone is willing to help others as all teams roles interlink at some stage.

    Your Impressions

  • 6. To what extent did you enjoy your placement / internship?
  • I have thoroughly enjoyed my placement year as I have think it has helped improve both my personal and professional skills. It has given me the opportunity to try a career in an industry that did not directly align with my degree so I have been able to gain more transferable skills to take back to university. I have enjoyed being able to live in a new city with some of the other placements, who have definitely made my placement an enjoyable experience.
