Job offer abroad from Holborn Assets?Watch
Yes you can go and work in a foreign country, I was at Demontfort University and for my placement year I went and worked in Oman next to Dubai (UAE). It was a great experience and nice to get out the UK and get a sun tan!
Well if you have got a job placement offer from Holborn Assets I would suggest you went down to the Placement office at De Montfort University and asked what they next step would be. Obviously you will need to begin sorting out your visa pretty fast.
If you have any questions about the country just ask! How long will you be out there for?
Good luck with the job!
Did you go on your own or friends? Which company did you work for? Hopefully if all goes well at Holborn Assets will get a permanent place there! Worked there in the past thanks to family, so never know once finish university could get a permanent job with them.
Hopefully works out as they are really nice people and a great team of people to work with.......and the sun is always a plus :-)
Well I hope you have a great time and like it, after all atleast your family is also out there! So if you did get a permanent job atleast you would all be together!
Best of luck again.
Can't say heard of Holborn Assets when was out there, but if you got fam their even better! Good luck and hope you get the job and hopefully see you there if get to go again! Yeee boooy! :-)
Might take a bit of time getting used to working on a Sunday but all good, think there is about 300+ employees at the company now :-/ Never worked for such a big company lol!
Thanks and let me know if you end up out their again, will have to defiantly meet up!
Best of luck!
Yes out in Dubai working for Holborn Assets as I write this! Glad ended up going that's for sure! If you are looking to do a Placement with them they are always looking to take on new Interns for June/September 2016 for 14 months, and years to come after that.
So far Dubai has been fantastic! I arrived in June and it was proper hot out here! But has now cooled down and the weather is really nice! It is still quite different from the UK whereby you have to abide by local rules, for example drinking in public is totally forbidden, and a fiver will get you an Apple Juice at the local bar.
Also, just to note you do have to be 21 to drink here and alcohol is not available to purchase from shops, only when you go out on the town....which is NOT CHEAP!
Overall the Placement so far is great! It is the first time Holborn Assets are offering a full 14 month Placement, so they are still learning the ropes, but it has been fantastic to date. Learnt lots, having a great time, lots of different digital projects to work on and a great social scene, even though it is not massively cheap out here. The salary is £850 ish per month, however it does come with housing and bills included....so can't complain.
I am currently working in the Digital & Social Media Marketing Department as this is exactly what my Degree is, a Digital & Social Media Marketing Degree.
Here is a review I have wrote on the job to date which will hopefully help you out a little more: http://www.ratemyplacement.co.uk/pla...ting-assistant
Yes it is defiantly a little further than Leeds, and a bit of improvement in weather conditions!
Well if you want to see if Holborn Assets are offering a Placement in the area you are studying, send an email to [email protected] and you should hear back pretty fast if they are up for giving you a ring, and you never know you could be on your way to Dubai for September 2016 for 14 months!
VERY BEST OF LUCK!
