Joined WCCTV: 2019
Placement Role: Business Development Executive
Current Role: Regional Account Manager
I knew that undertaking a placement year from university would give me a good insight into the world of work, and help boost my experience and career prospects moving forwards.
I basically wanted to have a good understanding of what working life was like before graduating.
I chose WCCTV because I had seen the case studies from other student placements on the Company's website, and it was reassuring to hear that there were lots of progression opportunities with the Company.
A lot of previous students had returned back to WCCTV after graduating and had progressed rapidly through the business as it was growing.
I didn't want to just do a placement year and leave, so that was what really appealed.
The most enjoyable thing for me was getting to see how the business operates as a whole, and how the sales function directly links to all other departments.
I was able to interact with people in several other departments, rather than just having a static role in one area of the Company. It gave me a real appreciation of how important the sales function is, and how it feeds into every element of the Company.
While I was on my placement year it was made very clear to me that if I worked hard, and was successful that there were progression opportunities available.
I was offered a full-time job, so I knew that once I completed my degree I wouldn't have to worry about job seeking
Within a few months of taking up the position, I have already been promoted to Senior Business Development Executive, with the responsibility of training new members of the team and acting as a mentor for their development.
Yes, absolutely 100%. During your placement year you'll get quality training, support and a variety of responsibilities, and on top of that there's a genuine opportunity to stay and progress within the business.
