From Classroom to Meeting Room: My work experience week at Imrandd

This week we were delighted to welcome Fifth year St Margaret’s pupil Ellen Smith as part of her work experience. We asked her to share her experience below!

“I decided to complete my work experience week with Imrandd as I wanted to discover more about business, marketing, and sales. I was also really interested to learn about what Imrandd do as a company.

My first task was creating my own LinkedIn profile and I learned how to add information about skills, experiences, endorsements, and accomplishments.

Over the week, I gained an insight into what it’s like to work within the Business Development and Marketing Team. I learned the importance of forging strong relationships with the client and getting to grips with customer needs.

A definite highlight was planning a step challenge for the company, the aim of which is to get outdoors, get fit and improve mental health.

I had the opportunity to meet lots of new people in different roles within Imrandd. It has been great interacting with the different teams as well as learning and developing new skills.

From a personal perspective, I have gained much more of an understanding of business development and marketing. Above all, being eager to learn is an important quality and one I will carry throughout my future career.”
