At the beginning of September, I had the opportunity to do a week’s work experience at Liz Lean PR before I started year 11 at school. I came in not knowing much at all about PR but I wanted to throw myself into a completely different workplace that I knew wouldn’t necessarily be easy, or something that I had experience with.

During my time here I now understand how many different services that Liz Lean PR offers and manages daily for its clients. This includes communicating with clients directly on the phone, working on social media pages and blog posts, or writing professional emails to certain people.

I found that during my time at Liz Lean PR, I’ve become more productive and realised that being able to follow tasks explained to me is one of my strong suits. I also immediately noticed that the team are all extremely helpful and created such a friendly and welcoming environment for me that meant that I had no difficulty asking Shona, or any of the other employees, a question about my tasks.

While doing work experience at Liz Lean PR, I believe that I’ve gained new skills that I wouldn’t be able to learn anywhere else, that will help me in the future.

I’d like to thank everyone at Liz Lean PR for being so accommodating and helpful towards me, and for giving me the opportunity to really contribute to the company by treating me just like one of them.
