I really enjoyed the work I did for OCP during my third year at uni. It allowed me to have a good balance between work and studying.
I was always given support when needed by my colleagues. Where I performed well, I was commended for my work which is always encouragement to continue doing well.
Whenever I had a question about a certain task, the supervisors always made me feel comfortable with asking questions and even giving me their personal contact details to get in touch with at anytime.
For a part-time job, I was never extremely busy. I really enjoyed the work anyway so it never felt like a burden.
I was always given a reasonable amount of responsibility during my year of work. As time went on on, so did the amount of responsibility. I enjoyed this as I knew I could be relied on by the management team.
As a law student, it definitely worked on enhancing my communication and networking skills. Having also been in touch with several large employers, I am sure these contacts will come in handy in the future.
It was always organised, which showed how hard the team works to make work flow smoothly. You always had an idea of the kind of work you would be doing well in advance.
As a Brand Manager, there was always a great deal of training involved. I did feel like a valued employee at all times.
Working from home
As someone with an interest in a legal career, I would not be interested myself. But I would see others from different study backgrounds that would be extremely interested in future employment here.
One of the friendliest work places I have ever experienced.
I was fortunate enough to work in an affordable area, which made my experience extremely fun.
Very lively with events happening almost every day/night of the week.
All the time. Between sports, music, culture - there was always something that you could do.
