Employment Services and Vacancy Support Assistant – University of Exeter

Career Zone Internship, University of Exeter Internship, UoE Internship, SCP, SBP, GBP, A2I

What were your main duties and responsibilities during the course of your internship?

My role was to assist the Employment Services Team by ensuring the smooth running of GBP, SBP and SCP placements, sending out bulletins and assisting with the running of training courses. I also assisted with the inputting and vetting of vacancies onto the Career Zone website.

What would you say was your biggest achievement over the course of your internship?

I had the chance to get involved with the organisation of training events which developed my organisational skills. I also improved my communication skills through regularly dealing with both employers and students. The experience of working in an officer has also taught me to use my initiative and the importance of learning to prioritise tasks and activities.

What benefits did your internship bring to your employer?

I was very flexible to cope with the differing demands on me from the different areas of work I was asked to carry out.
