My name is Ben and I am a GCSE business student who has been working with Ultimate for the past week.
The team at Ultimate are some of the nicest and most welcoming people I have ever met and will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable in their workplace. The environment in the Ultimate office is fast paced and hardworking but somehow they manage to keep it a very light and enjoyable experience. The Ultimate team have been very accommodating, letting me sit in and shadow meetings and were always willing to talk me through current projects and ones they’ve been working on recently.
During my week, I attended client and production meetings and did research on competitors of clients. This lead to creating mood boards focused on redesigning a client’s company logo. Working at Ultimate really puts into perspective the importance of teamwork, communication and the ability to get along with your colleagues. Enjoying coming in to work is one of Ultimate’s big aims and it is prevalent in the Ultimate office. Everyone is happy and enjoying themselves whilst working which is something that I really admire and like about Ultimate.
It is interesting to see how websites are turned from mood boards and ideas into a functioning modern website for companies across the UK. I just want to say a big thankyou to the Ultimate team for giving me the opportunity to work with them for the week and for being so friendly and open.
