Here more from our students...

Adam Bly, Placement Student in Marketing

I have picked up so many technical skills such as Photoshop, google analytics and social media management, all of which I’ve been allowed the time to develop to a high standard.




Orla McSparron, Service Desk Team Leader (former Analytics Placement Student)

My experience as a placement student was fantastic! I joined a small Service Desk team made up of students and full time analysts and was treated exactly the same as the full time members of the team.

I was given the chance to work on major projects and was responsible for bringing the support of new products over to our Service Desk. When I finished my placement, I was offered the chance to come back part time until I graduated and worked my way up to a senior level quickly, mostly due to my time spent as a placement student being involved in the same work as my full time colleagues and the relationships I had built throughout this time.

As a result of these relationships, I was offered a secondment on the infrastructure team 6 months after coming back to Experian, to work on a major Experian wide security upgrade project.

Once this project was completed successfully, I was then promoted to the Team Manager of the Service Desk I had previously completed my placement on.

Now, 1 year after graduating, have since taken over management of a Service Desk in Nottingham and am currently working on setting up a new team in Sofia, Bulgaria.

I can honestly say completing my placement with Experian was one of the best decisions I have made to date and have no doubts I would be in a very different position had I not completed my placement with Experian and been offered the chance of a full time role.
