work experience week

This week, we had the pleasure of George joining the Strudel team for a week of work experience. He was a real help to the team and here is what he had to say about his time here. Thanks George, we wish you all the best of luck for the future!

During my time here at Strudel I have learnt a number of skills and have gained a fantastic insight to working in a busy agency environment.

Throughout the week, I have assisted with a number of projects, which gave me great exposure to working as a team. I worked on a number of digital projects and learnt how to update and develop websites through their content management systems. I’ve also learnt how to create a newsletter on a web based online email system and studied Google Analytics.  All of this was such an interesting part of my week and is definitely a skill I can use in the future.

I have been able to work alongside the Strudel team on such a wide range of other projects, which include developing concepts for a new housing development and researching local areas and imagery that would help promote the scheme. I have attended briefing meetings and written a business plan for a property development firm, which I’ve found real useful as I’ve been able to see the processes involved in a project.  

Last but not least I attended the burger tasting challenge for the Waterloo Quarter Food Festival – I was even given the opportunity to be an official judge!

I have really enjoyed working here at Strudel. It has been a great experience and I have learnt so much in the last five days. The skills I have learnt will really help me in the future and it has been so inspiring. It has made me think a lot about later life and what I would like to do in the future.

If I could choose one thing that I enjoyed the most, it would be the people I have been working with because of the way they’ve supported me and helped me learn throughout the process.
