A week at Concept

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!
