Role Description

Really helping out anyone in the team who had a lot of work in order to lighten their load. I spent a lot of time out of the office doing site visits as well as measuring buildings. Administrative roles are part and parcel of being an 'intern' but they were never that painful!

    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • Had a really fun time, and got a real taster of what the industry is like, and i loved it!

    4/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • It is always very hard to mix in and bond with your team when you are only there for 4 weeks, but they were really nice and made sure that I had work on.

    3/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • All the team helped me and made sure that I was happy in my work. They always answered any questions I ever had.

    4/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • One problem with the nature of summer internships is that when you are doing them it is normally a quite time in the business. There was not always a lot of work to do and sometimes there was an element of twiddling my thumbs.

    2/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • When I was given work it was generally quite important. When i was taken to viewings I was often given an important role.

    3/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • Well I have done my degree and so am therefore looking for work, but this internship has given me great experience and looks great on the CV.
