This summer holiday two ELATT learners from our Business Administration course secured placements with Mobius PR.
Rashid: I enjoyed my 4 weeks of work experience with Mobius. Mobius is a PR, marketing and printing agency for theatres, based in Holborn. I worked every Tuesday from 10:30-5:30. Before I arrived at my placement, I had a little idea of what I will be doing. It was a great opportunity for me to get experience on how it will be working in an office environment. Before my first day I met with the PR Director Elin and Distribution and Print Coordinator Isobel to talk about what route I want to take and what I want to do in the next 5 years. We also talked what kind of company Mobius is.
Adnan: I was greeted by Elin and showed around the office, and I met Isobel and I met the Managing Director Richard Fitzmaurice. The staff were very welcoming and friendly when I went there in my first week. I was then handed some tasks to do. My first task was to put press nights they had for upcoming theatre shows on to a Google calendar. The second task was to do some research about Edinburgh Festival and also theatre. This was a good way to develop my research skills. The first day was using my knowledge and understanding on how the company runs and what kind of admin work they do. It made me to get some ideas of what expectations they have for me.
