Adam Patel - Student Placement

Joined WCCTV: 2014
Placement Role: Finance Assistant
Current Role: Senior Management Accountant

Why did you do a placement year?

While studying for a BSc in Accounting and Finance, I wanted to gain practical experience that would prepare me for full-time employment and improve my knowledge of the various roles available within Finance.

Why did you choose WCCTV?

WCCTV explained that my role would be critical to the business, and that rather than being considered a ‘student’, I would be treated as a key member of the team with the same responsibilities and level of respect as anyone else.

How did WCCTV support your development?

WCCTV gave me the opportunity to work across a wide range of finance roles, allowing me to learn new skills, experience many aspects of finance, and develop at a much quicker rate than I may have elsewhere.

Following my placement, I was offered a permanent role with the company whilst still studying - allowing me to grow my experience in concurrence with my studies.

I chose to stay with WCCTV after uni as I knew it would be a great opportunity to broaden my horizons and develop my skills within a rapidly growing company.

WCCTV further supported my career progression by facilitating my studies with ACCA, which gave me relevant qualifications to support my experience. The practical and academic skills I have developed while working with WCCTV have led to various promotions within the Company.

Would you recommend WCCTV to other students?

For anyone looking for a student placement to further their knowledge in a chosen career path, WCCTV is a great company to work for with an outstanding support system and a proven history of progressing and developing students.
