A week at Concept

July 6, 2016 2:02 pm

Here at Concept, we get lots of work placement requests and we do our best to accommodate them (Hey, we all started somewhere!). It’s not always possible due to a busy office, tight schedules, client meetings etc. However, last week Theo Matthews spent a week with us – learning the ropes on the digital, creative and client sides of the business. It was nice to have a fresh face in the office, an extra pair of hands and he was enthusiastic, polite and knuckled down. Also – he brought BISCUITS! Here’s Theo’s thoughts on his week at Concept:

When I was looking to find Work Experience, Concept offered me a placement in their office. As I wish to work in an office environment when I am employed, this sounded like a brilliant idea: I could experience what it was like to work in an office first-hand, giving me an idea on how work is like.

When I arrived, the first thing I noticed was the extremely welcoming and down-to-earth Concept team; resulting in the shared office had a very friendly atmosphere. They kept me occupied when I had nothing to do, which I think is something that doesn’t happen often in Work Experience. The jobs they had me do were very much like a real worker’s jobs – not just the typical making hot drinks.

In my week at Concept Advertising, I have learnt a multitude of skills for the future:

  • Cooperation with Clients and colleagues
  • Working on Independent tasks
  • Promoting
  • Populating a spreadsheet
  • Populating a spreadsheet

Overall, my Work Experience has been highly useful. I have learnt a lot about office life and work in general. I would recommend this to anyone looking for experience in an office.

Thank you Theo from all Concept team and we wish you all the best!
