My National Schools Partnership experience

Posted on Monday, February 10th, 2014

Carly has recently completed a six month long internship at National Schools Partnership. She has since earned herself a full-time position as an Account Executive within the company.


How did you hear about National Schools Partnership?

I heard about National Schools Partnership through an agency called Inspiring Interns. I was presented with multiple job descriptions that I could apply for and the company stood out to me as it was so unique.

What was the best thing about interning at National Schools Partnership?  

I would have to say the best thing about interning at National Schools Partnership was the exposure I had to all of the different departments. I was given the opportunity to work in multiple departments such as business development where I was able to contribute to pitches for new work. I started out doing research but as the internship went on I was allowed to attend pitch meetings with clients and input into pitch documents. On the account team I contributed to management of our client’s programmes and with the insights and planning team I gained valuable knowledge about the company’s specialist sector.

What was the most valuable thing you learnt? 

The most valuable thing I have learnt is the importance of a supportive team. The camaraderie between my colleagues is something that I really admire, as is the effort that goes into each piece of work. Every piece of work is a strong example of team work and everyone is always willing to help each other in any way possible.

What is the biggest challenge you faced as an intern?

The biggest challenge for me was adapting to a fast paced office. It was my first time working in an office environment, attending meetings and working in a large team. Other than short, infrequent group projects at university and part-time jobs I didn’t have any experience working in such a strong team environment. At first I was nervous to ask questions and felt that it would seem like I was clueless but I soon learnt that it is encouraged to ask as many questions as possible and everyone is always willing to help. It was also a big learning curve working with such a variety of people and seeing the different ways in which they work.

What did your role entail?

My role was extremely varied but I was primarily supporting the day to day planning and management of clients’ on-going projects. I was also given the opportunity to take responsibility for a small campaign with a senior member of staff over-seeing my work. Every day is different and the client portfolio is extremely diverse, which keeps us on our toes.
