The Five days, Five experiences competition was launched earlier this year and saw the winner, Bijoy Ali, experience the different areas of the diverse Heritage Group over a five day work experience placement.
Following his work experience we caught up with Bijoy to see what he thought of his time with the Group:
I applied for the Five days, Five experiences competition to help develop my understanding of how business works and how different departments of a business collaborate to meet client demands. It was a unique and invaluable opportunity as a young person who is thinking about the future, especially as I move ahead to complete my BTEC Business course.
I spent the week with Heritage in a different department each day. I enjoyed my time in Corporate Services the most, because I was given hands on tasks for the full day. It also interested me how it logistically works and benefits the clients. The director was personable and gave me some great advice, which was really helpful.
I would really recommend The Heritage Group to anybody who wants to see how the various departments of a business work with the chance to meet many different people over the week. My time here has been invaluable and it is reassuring to know that working for a company such as Heritage, I can continue to train and develop during my career with professional qualifications.
We wish Bijoy all the very best with his studies and look forward to running the competition again in 2017.
