We recently welcomed Ella – an International Business student in her final year at University – to the Torpedo office for some work experience.
We first met Ella at our Christmas party venue, where she was temping during her break from uni. She made a great impression with her bubbly personality, professional approach and positive attitude – a few cocktails later (us not Ella!), we invited her to contact us if we could help with her learning and career development. A few months later she got in touch and we arranged some work experience. So, what’s it like to be part of a busy B2B Marketing Agency? Here she explains her time with us in her own words:
Doing work experience with Torpedo was a whirlwind of exciting challenges and learning opportunities. Every morning, I joined Lucy, Evie, and Rosie in Client Services for a team meeting to discuss ongoing tasks and set goals for the day. From there, I would work with other members of the team to learn about different aspects of the business, as well their current projects, these included various areas of expertise such as: UX, Copy, Motion, and Digital.
Collaborating with my co-workers was a pleasure since I was continually exposed to their knowledge and creativity, which fuelled my own development. I also had the opportunity to witness how they maintain good client connections and adjust strategies to fit their demands by attending client meetings.
I also had the pleasure of attending a late summer pool party at the office which was a great way to socialise with the team after work!
To summarise, my day in the life of work experience at Torpedo was rewarding, and I am grateful for the opportunity to learn about the company. I learnt so much and had the privilege to work alongside some incredible people. Not only smart but funny too :).
“ I just wanted to thank everyone for how lovely you have all been and made me feel so welcome. Also for sharing every one of your unique expertise, safe to say you are a very cool bunch I have learnt a lot and wish success to you all at Torpedo! ”
