Fran Pullen – Consortium’s first intern leaves us today (31/03/23). Thank you for everything Fran! She has left us with this fantastic testimonial about her experience here and what Consortium meant to her.
My internship at Consortium – more than marketing has been a crucial step in my personal and professional development. Consortium is a fast-paced business that encourages creativity, initiative and forward thinking. In the first few months, I have learned more about the professional marketing sector than I could have imagined. This short-term internship soon transformed into a part-time job whilst I completed my studies, which was only possible due to the companies’ flexibility. It is voted 2023’s most flexible company to work in for a reason!
Consortium is not your typical internship experience where interns do coffee runs and organise files. From the beginning, you are immersed in content creation, networking, strategy writing, event management and many individual and group projects. I was able to put SEO, digital marketing, and social media lessons to practical use for client work. Working alongside experts to support clients gives a brilliant and realistic view of the sector. I have met a range of wonderful people; within the marketing, legal, accountancy and healthcare sectors to name a few. The wonderful team are passionate, supportive and always available to lend a helping hand. Lara will also encourage you to step out of your comfort zone – something that I was very grateful for!
To current students who need or wish to acquire experience in the sector, I strongly advise taking up a summer internship. If you want to challenge yourself to gain knowledge about the professional services marketing industry while working in an inspiring and comfortable atmosphere, this is the internship for you.
To conclude, my experience at Consortium has been MORE than a worthwhile internship, I have made connections for life and have enjoyed every moment of it. I am forever grateful for the mentorship from senior management and the lessons I have received throughout my time.
To anyone wanting insight into professional services marketing, you won’t regret applying.
