Recently, we’ve had the pleasure of welcoming Callum to our team for two weeks, and it was a truly rewarding experience for both.
Callum was able to work alongside our Junior Designer, Matthew and Senior Designer, Luigi, whilst also working alongside Developer, Megan, Account Manager, Amber and Director, Oli. This gave Callum an opportunity to see how we approach projects and work with clients. Callum was able to take on small tasks and projects, giving him chance to gain valuable hands-on experience.
By offering work experience placements, we are able to help students develop skills, gain confidence, and make valuable connections within the industry. But it’s not just about what the students can gain from the experience – we also benefit from having them on board. Fresh perspectives and new ideas are always welcome, they challenge us to think differently and keep us on our toes, which is always a good thing.
Here’s what Calum had to say.
‘During my work experience at Smith, I have learnt a lot of new skills to do with branding and working in the Adobe applications. It has been really helpful and has helped me understand what they do as a company and has kept me interested in it as an option further in life. Everyone I met in the office and online were all really friendly and helpful and I got along with them all really well. It is definitely a path I would recommend and it is something that I would be interested in doing again in the future.’
Cheers Callum, it was great to have you!
