Osborne Supports a very valuable 2-week office based work experience

Osborne recently supported a two-week work placement for a student at our Slough Office, Langley. Ben joined us in early July, the focus of his placement was around data analytics of our operational WIP (work in progress), within our property services business, as well as research into our business development team.

Ben worked closely with our teams and was mentored by Account Manager, Steve Wakefield. Offering mentoring during work placements are essential for students to gain real-world experience and develop their skills. By supporting Ben’s work placement, we were able to provide him with the opportunity to apply his knowledge in a practical setting and gain valuable experience in his field of study.

During his time with us, Ben demonstrated an exceptional work ethic and a willingness to learn. Ben was able to identify areas where we could improve our processes and make more informed decisions based on the data he analysed. He was able to work independently and collaborate with our teams. Steve Wakefield provided him with guidance and support throughout his placement, helping him to develop his skills and gain confidence in his abilities.

At the end of the placement, Ben was awarded a certificate and gift. Steve Wakefield thanked Ben for his hard work and dedication during his placement with us, making mention of how Ben’s contributions have been invaluable to our business, and that we are grateful for the opportunity to have worked with such a talented individual. Osborne wishes Ben all the best in his future endeavours, anticipating that he will go on to achieve great things in his career.

“I have found it interesting to transfer my skills to an unfamiliar industry and learn about it. I have improved in Excel in the two weeks I was here. I enjoyed being on the system and the work experience gave me a realistic viewpoint into working life.

I would like to thank Steve for his help, but also for trusting me to go about tasks on my own.”
