Sagittarius is pleased to report that Raphael Pimlott, a student from School of Engineering & Digital Arts (EDA) has joined the agency for a placement year within its technical client side development team.
Raphael joins Sagittarius for a 12-month placement in his 3rd year of a 4-year degree in Digital Arts. Raphael will assist the Client Side Development team in the smooth running of front end website development, digital design and build projects.
Over the 12-month placement, Raphael will gain great work experience to compliment his degree and valuable insight into a digital technology career.
Nick Towers, MD at Sagittarius commented “Raphael is showing a great amount of talent and is already a great asset to the development team. The skills he will learn over the next 12 months will be invaluable, alongside the real world work experience that will place him head and shoulders above his fellow students when they come to seek full time employment.
Raphael is working as an integrated part of the team and has his own live projects and clients work to complete. Raphael will experience day-to-day life from a digital agency perspective and utilise skills and technologies from the working world.
Raphael commented, “My first month at Sagittarius has flown by, everyone at the agency has really welcomed me and it’s a great place to learn. The team I am working with are very knowledgeable and I am gaining great experience working on a variety of projects.
Every year Sagittarius invites a student from EDA to join them on a 12 month placement basis, last years student, Fran Haselden has just completed her 12 month placement at Sagittarius and is due to return to university in September 2013. Fran will also be returning to work with Sagittarius on a part time basis whilst completing her final degree year. Numerous previous students have also been offered full time employment with Sagittarius upon completion of their degree.
