Interning with the technology team at ROVOP was great fun and I learned so much about business systems and other business areas in general. All the tasks and projects assigned to me were the perfect balance of challenging and enjoyable while feeling tailored towards areas I had expressed interest in. Initially I was apprehensive about being able to assist the team as I had no prior work experience in this department, however, ROVOP gave me the chance to apply what I had learned at university while acquiring further knowledge and skills. The confidence gained from this opportunity enabled me to enjoy diving straight into things that I had no prior experience with by the end of my internship. All in all, experiencing a real working environment along with team dynamics was extremely useful and interesting for myself!
ROVOP was experiencing rapid growth and change in scale during my time as an intern and I found it fascinating to watch the company evolve so much within a short space of time and be part of that change too. Attending meetings, monthly business updates and even CEO handovers kept me updated with the latest progress and this level of transparency demonstrated to me how much employees are valued. I believe it is the first time that the technology team have had an intern and I hope that they continue to do so because I think it is extremely useful to learn from experienced professionals!
The onboarding and offboarding processes were excellent. I was particularly impressed with meeting all the employees as part of the grand tour on my first day – this truly made me feel welcome from the beginning. The team couldn’t have been more accommodating and friendly! On multiple occasions I was thoughtfully notified of events concerning the energy industry including oil and gas. I found these events to be very insightful they alerted me to how exciting the change in the sector is while providing an opportunity to network with industry experts. It was also great to receive such encouraging feedback at the end of my time.
It was a pleasure to be part of the technology team and, ultimately, the family that is ROVOP. Several socials during my short time with the business helped me get to know everyone better. From the BBQ at the beginning of my placement to the frequent lunch’n’learns sessions, I have absolutely felt included at every moment. I will cherish my memories and time spent with everyone at ROVOP!
Overall, I am extremely thankful to ROVOP for taking me onboard and providing this valuable experience. I know all the knowledge and skills I have gained at ROVOP will serve me well as I pursue a career as a biomedical engineer. I highly recommend anyone who wants to advance their career to consider ROVOP as a platform for optimum growth and development.
