An enjoyable and insightful experience
Initially, I was unsure of where I wanted to complete my work experience, however, after recommendations from my teachers and hearing about Selenity through Lincoln City Football Club; I decided to apply to do my work experience placement at Selenity, which I was lucky enough to secure!
On the Monday morning I was quite nervous, but following a morning with the hardworking and enthusiastic Expedite Team, the nerves soon subsided. The whole team were incredibly welcoming, and I enjoyed working in the relaxing, yet efficient environment.
During the week, I set myself targets of things I wanted to achieve, these included; learning more about how a well-run business like Selenity works, as I thought this would aid my Business Studies A-level, as well as experiencing what it’s like to be part of a team on a daily basis. After my first day, I was already on my way to achieving these targets.
While at Selenity I got to work in every department, however I would say that I enjoyed the Professional Services and Sales and Marketing teams the most. The Marketing team were very friendly and committed to their work and Chloe helped me set up a LinkedIn profile which will help me when I apply for jobs in the future. The Sales and Marketing department was also of particular interest as we cover these aspects of business within my Business Studies A-level.
Other departments that I worked with included Service Desk and Development, although I wasn’t familiar with their work, once I began working alongside them, I found their working very interesting. It was useful to gain experience of what they do within the business, and to help me decide what sort of career I may want in the future.
Finally, on the last day, I worked with Neil Everatt the CEO of Selenity. I found this time very useful as it allowed me to see what it’s like to work with such a driven and hard-working CEO, who runs the business incredibly well. He spoke to me about the history of the company and took me to Lincoln City Football Club where I was shown the ins and outs of the sponsorship that Selenity does there; I thoroughly enjoyed this.
Overall I feel that I achieved all of the targets that I wanted to whilst having a hugely enjoyable week. Furthermore, I think the experience has given me an insight into lots of different career choices available to me and has personally given me an idea of the type of career I’d like.
I want to thank everyone at Selenity for such an enjoyable and insightful experience. I’d highly recommend Selenity to anyone considering doing their work experience placement. All the colleagues are friendly and are hugely committed to their work because of the relaxed culture the company provides. I’m sure that anyone with an interest in any of the departments would find the week immensely fun and beneficial.
Thank you to Selenity once again for such a great experience!
