Case Studies

"I've joined KBM though their summer placement in their marketing department, and since then I've been working on SEO, working on digital marketing campaigns and marketing campaigns in general. So everything that I've learnt in theory I've been able to implement it in practice here at KBM. Therefore I would recommend anyone looking for a work placement to join KBM."

"I found out about KBM, because they came to my careers fair and we interacted there and this is how I found out about the opportunities here. I was not too sure what was expected of me, because it's the first time I've done something in this field or of this nature, so it was quite daunting initially, but the colleagues out here were really nice so I settled in quite quickly. On a day to day basis I am involved in the planning and execution of text and email campaigns and this is quite interesting as a first year marketing student to be involved in the deep end of things, and being right there sending out and developing these campaigns which not many people get to do in their first year of their Marketing career. It's an interesting environment with colleagues that are quite friendly almost to the extent of being a little family down there in that room. It’s quite dynamic in the sense that there is always action in the office, and there is always phone calls to answer and running around but it's quite fun, just to be in the thrilling environment that KBM provides. KBM is quite beneficial as it gives you experience in a different range of things, down from working on reports, from working on Bank reconciliations, from working with the software skills and client facing skills. This is useful in any sector, especially the corporate sector, where client facing deals and transactions are most frequent. Experience in the field is more beneficial than a degree. A degree is a piece of paper at the end of the day. In quite casual terms you read through a textbook in university, you get module outlines, you get a test. You recite out knowledge onto the paper. It's all well and good if you can do that but in the real world if you don't have the experience to back it up you can't really go far in life. Which is why I'm quite happy to have had this opportunity at KBM and I recommend it to all of you."

"Last year I was taking a gap year and I was contemplating whether I should do an apprenticeship or go to Uni, and this year is when I decided I should take on an apprenticeship from KBM. I was working at Tescos a couple of months back and a colleague of mine recommended KBM to me. So I applied online, called up KBM, came here for an interview, the interview went well and Umar brought me back here, for an apprenticeship opportunity. Good experience dealing with customers, dealing with your employers, dealing with candidates, helping other candidates get with employers for other job opportunities and it has really helped my communication skills."

"I was doing a traineeship at a place in croydon, and they are the ones that introduced me to KBM. Well, before I was actually doing a work experience here so I've been doing that for 3 months now, and then after that they decided to keep me on as an apprentice. Well I learnt a lot of different communication skills as I've been working with EU students, like form Italy and France."

"I was looking for an apprenticeship and I was on the Indeed website so I applied, an then on the next day I got aphone call from one of the team members"

"It was exactly what I was looking for, so I applied through my CV and within 3-4 days I got a call. I've gained a lot of skills a lot of knowledge and certainly a lot of confidence. with the apprenticeship not only you get to work, but you get to learn at the same time and at the end of the apprenticeship you would gain a certificate and you would gain qualifications, so you're earning whilst you're working. Where as with university you would just sit down do your exam and later on once you finished uni and graduated you would apply for jobs. So I thought of course apprenticeship is the best way to go, as you are doing 2 in 1."

"Hi my name is Nazmeen. I am an undergraduate student at the University of Westminster and here at KBM i am doing my internship. Gaining a precious work experience in a office based environment is great spot to improve your CV and for your graduate prospects especially when you are at KBM. Whether you are looking to go in an Accounting sector, Sales and Marketing, Recruitment and HR or Media Solutions KBM can provide necessary skills you need for your dream job. I have only been here a couple of months and I have already gained work experience and skills in accounting, HR and Marketing and I am ready to apply those in any company I may join. I thank KBM for this amazing opportunity that they provide me with and I look forward to it. "

It is not like studying in university at all. It gives you experience about working in a business based environment. You learn so many things you can learn in a day in a book. If you just come here and practice a lot.

Hi I am Jorden Smith I am a student of University of Hertfordshire and also the president of employable student society. I have been provided with this opportunity from KBM to work here for our Summer Internship Program for my sandwich year. It has been very effective. Since I have been here the work environment has been perfect. I have come in each day and there is always a new topic for me to get on it. Since being at KBM has provided me with major benefits to both my life and my studies when I go back to university. Skills which I didn’t have prior to the internship I have got now and also the skills which I have learnt will be beneficial to me. I know it’s hard to find internships. For all the students out there who are actually looking for one, KBM is here to help you.
