Fantastic job, with the support to grow into your role and really apply the Theory you have learn't at University.
A very close knit team, that provide support and advice even when they are busy. You will often help other members of the team and when required they will assist you.
Fantastic support is given. The tasks are thoroughly explained and then you are given the time and space to work your way through the work. While knowing you can ask for assistance if required.
This role is very busy at month end and a bit more relaxed during the month. If you are very enthusiastic and understand the work you will be given more work, potentially in different departments.
You are given a large amounts of responsibilities during your placement. Many of these if they aren't performed currently have a direct impact on others.
You apply the skills from your degree in a practical environment. While also picking up more broader 'life skills'.
Fun maybe isn't the correct word, as work needs to be done and has to be done to deadlines. But the atmosphere is friendly and fun and everyone has time for you.
You are in a permanent position. Not just a role made up for you. You have 6monthly reviews but are welcome to ask for them more regularly.
I wasn't placed on any courses but was support in a trip to the Broughton Plant and was given time off to look around other areas of the business.
A job is recommended for Airbus. They value there employees.
The general age in the office isn't young. However, there are enough people willing to have a drink in the evening and also around 70 interns exist on the Filton site to social with.
Bristol varies a lot. Different areas cost more to live in. I would recommend living near work and then socialising in town, however, it is expensive.
If you can get a good group of people you will not be short of good nights out in Bristol.
Nothing through work but plenty of local teams and clubs to joining.
