The Role



The Role

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

The job is challenging, varied and rewarding, it can be hard work at time but from a personal development level it is worth it


2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

The company as a whole values each employee and this is always emphasized through, support, rewards and recognition


3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

The training programme is well structured and the career path is clear, support and training is given throughout from all levels of management


4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

The hours and long and the days are very busy, that is one comment I would pass on to potential applicants. The work however, is very rewarding.


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

There are only 4 members of office staff in our branch and we are responsible for all areas of development of our business so the responsibility is there from the start.


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

Because of the varied nature of the job the skills developed during my placement are not only a good way of applying the theory lectured at university, but will be invaluable in later life.


The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Due to the culture of teamwork and business development the atmosphere in the branch is excellent.


8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

Very well organised, the training is very structured and taking on the graduate scheme one year ahead is excellent.


9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

Exactly the same as they would with the graduates, which I think is excellent for a placement student and sets up a potentialjob after uni, at one step ahead.


10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Financial Bonus
  • Company Parties/Events
  • Healthcare from home

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

After finishing my training I am returning to the company, which is not only a good job to walk in to at assistant management level but it countrywide so location will not be a problem.



12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

Because we are spread amongst the branches all over the North it is difficult to develop much of a social scene


13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

Ok really, I didn't face any difficulties and was able to save for my final year.


14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

I think if it was nightlife you were looking for you shouldn't really choose Scarborough, try one of the Leeds/Newcastle branches


15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

There are a few charity events going on and there have been celebrations for the North East but not really any activities.
