Regardless of not winning the brief, I have been entering their online competitions regularly since then, and came top 10 on one occasion (Whoop).
They receive requests for work placements so regularly, its slightly overwhelming to see, so I have never taken it upon myself to apply, family and health aside, it was an opportunity I would have loved to take.
Well now I have!!
A few weeks back, while browsing their site (nothing unusual there), I came across an open call for applications to attend an open day. Excitedly I checked out the details to find a mere 10 places would be available. Thats a lot of submissions for so few places.
Just to see the inside of the company, whose morals lie on allowing quality take over quantity and speed, it would be unbelievable. So I thought why not? I'm in a position now where looking for the right career is within my grasp, and where better than the one company I have admired afar for years.
Here are some of the submissions I sent in to them:
