My name is Hayley Billington and I have been coming to Toolkit Websites for work experience for the past 2 months, working two days a week. I am currently studying media at Solent university in Southampton, where I first developed an interest in web design and development and my experience at Toolkit has only increased this even more.
I was also given the opportunity to see the New Business Team in action which gave me insight to a part of the company I hadn't originally given much thought to. This was while I was working on a research project for Toolkit, sourcing companies that potentially needed our help building or redesigning their website. I completed this task pretty much independently and this responsibility made me feel trusted.
Everyone at Toolkit has always made me feel like a significant member of the team, asking me about my university work and making me feel at ease. I was even invited along to the monthly Toolkit activity - bowling! It's such a great environment to work in as everyone really pulls together as a team to get the jobs in hand completed to the utmost quality.
I would recommend doing work experience at Toolkit to anyone, even if they don't have a specific interest in web development. Being a part of the company's positive work ethic and brilliant customer service gives great satisfaction and it has been a pleasure to have been involved.
