1. Please give an overview of what your work experience involved:


I had to work in a department of Human Resources. however the friends i have met here from different schools have told me about the department and i have enjoyed listening to them because they are interesting. another thing is also meeting my department members because they have interesting story lines too.

2. What training and skills development did you learn from your work experience?


I just need to project my voice more and I think that my confidence level has increased and so has my teamwork level. i am now even more confident because of this experience. again i would like to thank my team which is HR for this placement and helping me a lot.

3. To what extent did you enjoy your work experience?


It was very enjoyable just getting to know everyone was fun because they were very nice and caring and fun to be with. i met a lot of people from different schools and different ages. also i liked the fact that i could do things at my own pace which is lovely.

4. How well organised was your work experience?


Very organised because of my team and my manager. however i did manage my times here and when my manager was not here i managed to get where i needed to go without being told step by step for everything. i also would like to thank the HR team for making this placement for me.

5. How much did you learn about the company culture and what it would be like to work there?


I learnt quite a lot even though it was a lot to take in but I got my head around it eventually because of my team members. i really like how this company is really diversed and gives everyone a chance. i think it is really lovely how no one judges each other.

6. How much did your work experience help you in deciding on your future career path?


A LOT because I didn't really know much about the job I wanted to do in future but with the help of M&G I understood it very well. also i would really recommend this experience to everyone i possibly can as i enjoyed my time here very much.

7. Were you paid or reimbursed for this experience?


i was reimbursed because at my age i do not think i am allowed to get payed however if this websites just allows me to not write fifty words for everything i may get a five pound voucher for amazon and that will be very nice and helpful for me.

8. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees?


Yes and it was actually interesting to meet them because they had quite an interesting story to how they got to the position they're in now. The one thing I mainly learnt from them is that university isn't for everyone but never stop chasing what you really want if you strongly believe in it and really want it.

9a. Would you recommend M&G to a friend?


9b. Why?

The reason is because that it's really not what you would expect, in a good way. Also it was very enjoyable to pretty much everyone that took on the work experience here. There isn't much to say sorry. But this experience has been a very wonderful experience for me.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to M&G?

Do not be scared because everyone here is lovely and caring to be around and they'll always be there for you if you don't understand anything or are struggling at something. They will always be there to help. If you don't understand anything ALWAYS ask because it really helps.
