Candidate Feedback

“A huge thank you for the last four weeks! Words cannot describe how much I have loved being part of the team – have learnt so much and met some wonderful people. It’s a very special place to work. I have felt so at home and would love to come back!”

-        Ellie, University of Exeter graduate in Drama (8th June – 3rd July work placement)

 

“From the start, I was engaged in varied, challenging and exciting work. Before starting here, I only had a vague understanding of ‘PR’ despite previous work experience. I immediately felt part of the team, and gained experience of shoots, sell-ins, creative thinking session and developing media lists etc. A great insight in to the industry. “

-        Alex, University of Birmingham graduate in History (9th February – 6th March 2015 work placement)

 

“Taylor Herring was everything I imagined it to be and so much more. It was exciting to work with amongst creative and like-minded people. I was immediately made to feel part of the team and actually gained hands on experience. The saying that ‘no two days are the same’ often gets thrown around but, nothing could be more true about my time at Taylor Herring. It was really great to be present at shoots as I got to see how things come together ahead of a stunt.”

-        Clogagh, Nottingham Trent graduate in Broadcast Journalism (9th March – 9th April 2015 work placement)
