quote When I first started my Advertising and Media Relations course at Huddersfield University, I knew that in my third year I would have to gain a year's work experience in a role suited to my course. I found the Marketing Assistant role at Buy It Direct, which I am currently filling, on the university placement scheme website, e-placements. Every aspect of the role seemed to fit everything I wanted to do at the time.

I was very clear that I wanted to work for a company where I am allowed to express my ideas and continue to learn in an environment where I feel my opinion is valued and appreciated, and that is exactly what I have received whilst working here! I have learnt so much already by being a part of the marketing team and I feel like this role has finally made me realise what kind of career I want after I finish my final year at university.

quote I am currently studying BSc Computing at Huddersfield University and as part of my course I was to complete a 12 month industrial placement. One of the roles advertised through my University was within the IT department at Buy It Direct. I saw that it was a massive company, with many successful websites. I decided to apply given the role description, which involved working on up and coming projects and integrating with the IT team there.

Thankfully I was offered the role after being interviewed, and I haven't looked back since. I am now about halfway through my placement and have made a lot of progress in my own development, doing many things such as importing the images for the new web platforms and creating reports per request from various departments of the company. Additionally, I created a website relocation tool that is used internally every day. It has been a challenge and learning new things every day has motivated me. I'm happy to have had this opportunity and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others when I return to University.
