Marketing Communications Placement Testimonials


Rebecca Dicello, Sheffield Hallam University - BA (Hons) Marketing Communications and Advertising

"From the minute I arrived, I was made to feel like a long-standing member of the marketing team and quickly became part of the family! My placement year at NI has taught me invaluable personal and professional skills, which I will take with me into my final year at university and career beyond. I had a vast amount of responsibility from the get-go; such as project managing the second largest event of the year, developing customer-facing web and social media content and co-managing the promotion of a European-wide webcast series. I would not hesitate in recommending anyone to do their placement at NI."


Bethany Oakes, Nottingham Trent University - BA (Hons) Business Management and Marketing

"My internship at NI has been a thoroughly enjoyable and invaluable experience in which I have been able to develop new skills and expand my knowledge of the marketing world. I was given responsibility and accountability from an early stage through the fantastic opportunities presented, such as planning and executing large scale events, writing press releases and supporting local PR activities. The marketing team made me feel welcome from day one whilst also creating a challenging and supportive environment which allowed me to thrive and will undoubtably benefit my future career."


Stephen Wray, University of Birmingham - BSc (Hons) Business Management

"The internship at NI allowed me to not only build upon the skills and theory I had learnt as part of my degree, but provide me with a wealth of opportunities to expand my knowledge and evolve my skills. The extremely friendly nature of the office allowed me to fit in straight away and the early responsibility made me feel a valued member of the team. During my time here I’ve had many responsibilities including; project managing all e-newsletters in branch, owning NI UK & Ireland’s Social Media platforms, supporting events with online promotion and database marketing, creating customer-facing web content and leading large hard copy projects. It has been a fantastic year with some great people. My degree will certainly benefit from my time here."


Elisabeth Uzzell, Southampton Solent University - BA (Hons) Marketing Management

"The year I have spent at NI has been invaluable experience for both my degree and future career. I have had the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects and campaigns that directly link back to the theory taught in my University lectures. As a Marketing Intern you interact with most departments of NI UK, giving a deeper insight into how the business works and broadening my knowledge base further. The Marketing team have a great atmosphere to work in; I have always been treated as an equal and made to feel part of the team from my first day."
