The Motability Scholarship Programme provided me with an ideal opportunity to gain experience in the workplace during my years at university; in total, I spent two summer breaks with the company and have subsequently joined the organisation as a full time employee.
How has your employer helped you to do well at your workplace?
As an IT student, I was keen to join Business Systems and see how the modules I had been studying could be put into practice in the real world. I was placed in London with the Business Analyst team within Business Systems. From the outset, I was made very welcome and was encouraged to meet with the individual team members to understand their roles. Before long I was contributing at team meetings and participating in larger meetings around the business. Coming from the classroom environment I found this sense of responsibility incredibly rewarding.
Placements: Business Systems
Although the majority of my time was spent within Business Systems, in each placement I was allocated time to work amongst the other areas of the business to become familiar with the role they play. This exposure to the business was a real eye opener as it outlined the importance of working together and emphasized the mammoth task of running and maintaining such an incredible scheme.
