One of our very own team members has been rewarded for her role at the flourishing Prospect 13.
Robert Gordon University (RGU) student Sarah Kelly was named runner up in the inaugural best placement student industry award which was dished out by the School of Creative & Cultural Business during a ceremony at P&J Live on Wednesday, July 13th.
Sarah initially joined the team on a 12-week placement during which her initial focus centred on working with the experienced team to create two client websites so that, during her tenure, she would be able to taste different stages of web development and see the projects become reality.
However, realising that Sarah was too good to say goodbye to after 12 weeks, Prospect 13 Managing Director Cerri McDonald quickly offered Sarah a full-time summer job which will become part-term during term, giving her valuable industry experience as she completes her studies at RGU.
Commenting on her award, Sarah Kelly said:
“The opportunity to be part of a dynamic team was something I jumped at and I am grateful to Cerri for the opportunities I was able to tap into during my placement. I’m really looking forward to honing my skills in an industry setting over the summer, and continue to enjoy a positive balance of academic and practical learning during my final year.”
Cerri McDonald added:
“Investing in the next generation of creative professionals is critically important, not only to our company ethos but also in ensuring our industry attracts and nurtures good people. Sarah embodies the very best of the wealth of up-and-coming talent which is out there, and we are delighted to have her as part of the team.”
