Improving brand advocacy among employees is certainly a topic of conversation in many organisations today.…
This week, we were lucky enough to have Charlotte Nightingale joining the team for a work experience placement.
Charlotte is currently studying Business Marketing at Cardiff University and spent three days with us here in the Client Services department. We asked her to tell us a bit about her experience at Synergy.
“I’m about to enter my second year at Cardiff University, and the opportunity to gain some work experience at Synergy Creative over the summer holiday was a fantastic one. Having the chance to experience first-hand exactly what it’s like to work within a successful marketing agency, has reinforced my thoughts on just how much I’d like to pursue a career in marketing in the near future.
Over the few days I spent with Synergy, I completed several tasks that I took a lot from. I enjoyed getting stuck in and being hands on, and felt this gave me a better insight into how a creative agency goes about their day-to-day business. I was given tasks such as conducting market research, reading through & analysing design briefs, proof-reading pitches, and using a case study to create my own design brief; all of which I found very interesting. They definitely helped to increase my knowledge and understanding of this particular area of business.
Although I knew a little bit about Synergy Creative beforehand, I learnt a great deal more about them; how passionate they are, and how they work to be successful as a business. The team were so friendly and made me feel so welcome. I really appreciated how much time they gave me, as I know just how busy they all were. My experience with Synergy has been invaluable, and I feel that it will benefit me greatly as I go on to completing my degree course.”
