Operating as usual

Here is Malina, who has been carrying out her first placement in the Occupational Health department within the RUH. Malina has been developing her organizational and IT administration skills, managing large quantities of data and maintaining a database of confidential records.

Malina recently interviewed for her Term 2 placement, which will start in January. This placement will be at the NDTi (National Development Team for Inclusion), and we are very excited about this new partnership! The NDTi are a fantastic organization, working in the Social Change space – aiming to enable people at risk of exclusion, due to age or disability, to live the life they choose. Through research, development and supporting partners, the NDTi inspires and supports policymakers, services and communities to make change happen – change that leads to better lives.

Malina has shown an interest in marketing and media-related work, and the new placement will offer many opportunities to develop these skills. Tasks could include:
- Report formatting
- Creating social media posts to share the NDTi’s work
- Research project work, including designing surveys and assisting with interviews
- Communications and marketing
- Blogging/Vlogging
- Creating/updating graphics and other visuals for flyers and other publicity outlets

Malina said that she felt very nervous about her interview for this role, but straight afterwards reported that she felt amazing. The boost in self-confidence that comes through facing up to challenging situations (particularly something like work interviews which are an important part of professional life), experiencing and conquering them is so important for personal development and opening up future opportunities.

Malina’s performance in the interview (which was hosted by a panel of three!) was brilliant. As well as remembering to take her time with her answers, Malina also chose to ask the panel some great-quality questions of her own:
- 'If I learn how to do my tasks quickly, and finish them quite fast, are there other back-up tasks I can be given for these situations?'
- 'How long has the NDTi been around for?'
- 'What has inspired each of you to do the work that you do?'

Amazing! Well done Malina! :-)

Here is Chloe, who has been carrying out her first placement in the Oasis Café within the RUH. Chloe took up the challenge of going straight into what can be quite a busy work environment, with lots of technical tasks to learn as well as dealing with a high volume of customers. Chloe has done an amazing job of learning the various elements of her role, whilst providing excellent customer service to the hardworking staff of the RUH. She is a master till operator! The café team have loved having her on board, and are going to be sad to see her go when she moves on to a placement in the Children’s Ward next term… a new challenge which we are sure she will rise to!

Recent comments that have been received from RUH colleagues:
- "Chloe is doing a wonderful job in the always busy Oasis Café"
- "Chloe makes a very good Cappuccino!"
- "Love your coffee Chloe"
- "Chloe is 10/10… What a nice person! She is doing very well"
- "Previous interns are thriving and this year’s interns are already making such a difference"
