Employer Testimonials

Here are what some of our current employers have to say about our Work Experience Programme.

He was a fantastic asset to the company and we have every intention of staying on touch with him. He had a great work attitude and settled in well with other members of staff. Thank you for thinking of us when placing him.”    
Managing Director speaking of a Taiwanese trainee in the IT/Software department

Carmen brought a breath of fresh air to our business. She has good people skills and quickly settled in as part of our team. Her focused attitude to the tasks we set her was so important and not easy as there is so much noise and distracting conversations going on around the office. Carmen has been a valuable asset to our company and developed and improved some important aspects of our business. We will miss her terribly.
Les speaking about a student from Spain who worked in all departments of the electronics business.

Eleanora’s ability to communicate in Italian was a great attribute. She showed a great ability to “get on with the job”. She created an itinerary to our Milan trip gaining information from the internet as well as documenting all the work she has achieved. She was always polite and had good telephone skills. Upon our return from Milan Elanora developed good relationships with the people we met. Telephone calls have been made and we are now able to maintain these contacts. The knock on effect of this is that we are able to witness many other products which we can add to our portfolio. This will continue when Elanora has left us.
Mark speaking about an Italian student who worked within their Marketing and Import Department.

We would welcome Sola back at any time. She is a pleasure to work with. Is a good team worker, friendly, enthusiastic conscientious and a fast learner. She has taken an active role in customer service, sales, framing and mounting original artwork. Research of prints along with the production of description labels of original work were also completed by her. Fantastic! –

Wen has been an asset to the team. He quickly understood how the business runs and provided well evaluated recommendations to all project work. He possesses good interpersonal skills and has worked well with all team members.  –

I believe and hope Zhanar  is indeed happy and enjoying her experience here. she is certainly busy and proving she is a real asset to the team! Yesterday we took her out for dinner to make her feel at home. -
Ben about a student from Khazakstan who worked in an Oil company.

Sylvie is very conscientious indeed. Her communication skills are outstanding, her application was professional and I only wish we could hire her!
French student who worked in Customer service

We were delighted to have Oxana as part of the marketing team. She made a good contribution to both the business tasks she was set and the social aspect of working in a small department. She got on very well with her Host family, and has made many friends with native English staff as well as our Russian employees. Her English language skills have improved markedly and she has a better understanding of how a multinational marketing department works. I would be happy to recommend Oxana to a future employer.
Nick speaking about a Russian student who worked in Marketing

Geraldine was a pleasure to have. We gave her a small present and our MD gave her some money by way of his appreciation of all her efforts. The support given by Abby at Concorde was excellent. She kept in regular contact to check on Geraldines progress. We already have another student placement booked in.
