RGU Student Placements at TINTO — Meet Anjola & Dorcas
We are delighted to have Anjola and Dorcus join Team TINTO for month-long placements, focused on communications.
Both MSc Corporate Communication & Public Affairs students at Robert Gordon University, they are currently working on some really exciting communication strategies for an innovative new TINTO product (coming soon!) and we're enjoying their fresh perspective and enthusiasm.
We asked them both to give a few thoughts on the experience so far, and we look forward to welcoming more students and young professionals to the team in the months and years to come.
Dorcas: "Working with TINTO has been a thrilling experience that has exposed me to a different world / discipline. I never knew learning can be fun and enriching. Myself and Anjola have been entrusted with developing a marketing plan for a new launch and this has brought out our creative attributes.
Every one at TINTO — from Richard himself to the rest of the staff — has made us feel welcomed and involved. Lucy and Ailish have been the most perfect and open supervisors to have on any team — thank you for trusting us with such big responsibilities.
Of course, I also have to talk about the office environment — with its quotes and core values written on the wall for all to see and run with, and the constant offer of tea or coffee to all. I will never forget this experience and I know it has shaped me for greater responsibilities in life.
Thank you #TeamTinto."
Anjola: "Working with TINTO for my placement has been a richly rewarding experience. Alongside my colleague, Dorcas, I have been creating a marketing communications strategy for TINTO's new product.
My favourite things about TINTO are how down-to-earth the people are, the company culture and, of course, the gorgeous workspace! Even though we're only here for a few weeks, everyone has been super helpful and generous with their time.
To summarise, it has been refreshing to be around such creative individuals, and I wish everyone all the best with their projects."
