Completed Work experience only
Work experience: When studying at GCSE level I embarked on a week’s work experience program at the Very.co.uk headquarters. This was my first experience in a professional environment and during the week I worked in a variety of operational areas, from the fashion photography studio to the pricing and promotions department. Most significantly, I had the chance to oversee the Business Analyst team who were responsible for providing solutions to issues that arise in the business and preventing them from occurring again. This opportunity gave me the chance to experience a professional environment.

Loved Working For This Company
Worked for Shop/Littlewoods for 25 years and only left due to family relocation. Lots of opportunities to grow and move in and around the company. Excellent leadership opportunities and coaching. An exciting place to work!

Great place to work
Typical Senior Project Manager role, looked after a variety of IT Projects. Budgetary control is critical so this is one to think about. Would definitely go back

Frustrating
There was a desire to change the organisation from the top, however the vision wasn't clearly communicated, this resulted in wasted effort and constant change in priorities.

Productive and fun workplace
This was a fast-paced environment, and they had PI targets to hit, it was fun! Although some people who worked there were rude, management quickly sorted that out. If you've just left college, this place is a good place to work. You get full training and benefits from the cafeteria

Overall excellent
I enjoyed it there as the work was enjoyable and getting there was no trouble. The overall experience was great and I wouldn't change anything. I would recommend people to work there as I found the place good. The only downside to the place is that it is closing down and relocating to Birmingham.
