The Role

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

There was a great atmosphere in the office, all my colleagues were helpful and friendly and the work I was given to do was interesting and varied. I felt busy, but not too much so, and like I was an appreciated part of the department. The talks and socials organised for the interns were also really useful for getting to know the company and career sector better.
