Intern Insight: Ewan Walker

Like a lot of people my age, I don’t have a set idea of what I want to do in the future. So, I wanted to intern at Denholm Associates to give me an idea of what it might be like to work in the world of recruitment.

But my time here has given me so much more than that.

Working here has given me valuable, hands-on experience in this fast-paced environment. I had the opportunity to write ad copy for several live vacancies and have them published on the Denholm website.

I’ve been involved in actively searching for potential candidates using professional recruitment software, some of who were presented to clients.

On top of that I had the chance to use web analytics software to generate new leads, sort through and update their vast database, and even try my hand as some promotional photography for the business.

It’s been amazing to be able to really sink my teeth into so much actual work in such a short space of time. It has been an experience that will no doubt help me down the line and make some fantastic additions to my CV - helping me secure employment in the future.

"Of course, it's not just the work opportunities that have made this internship such a good experience – it’s the people. From day one, everyone was so friendly, welcoming and eager to help make this experience as valuable for me as possible."

I had sit-down meetings with all the staff throughout the week, to share with me their experiences of working in recruitment. They even went above and beyond and helped me to brush up my CV and LinkedIn Page. The staff have made this a truly nice place to work, and I am so grateful to them for letting me be a part of it all.
