The Role

Role Description

Working in the EMEA PMO (Programme Management Office) I was responsible for supporting and leading a number of projects which often aimed to implement the strategic vision of the European Leadership Team.

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

Really enjoyed the role and the overall experience of the placement year, not much could have been done to improve it

Even though I often worked with colleagues much more senior than me in the organisation I was never left out of discussion and I always felt that my points even if bad ones would not be criticised but rather developed and explained

Never micromanaged but always supported in the work I was doing

Whenever there was chance of me having spare capacity there was always work to do but at the same time no one would force unrealistic pressures/deadlines on to you


5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

As mentioned before, I was never micromanaged and often ad to make decisions entirely on my own but there was always support which I engaged with regularly


6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

A lot of investment into my personal skills from the company.

Everyone was introduced to each other and throughout the year we met up for drinks, meals and other social activities
