Over the course of the year, Ben became a valued member of Pagabo’s team.
He took on the role of Design Lead, creating fresh user guides for Pagabo throughout the year along with supporting the business with many other designs.
During his 12 months, Pagabo also gave Ben access to LinkedIn Learning, which provided him with thousands of courses to extend his studies even further.
Over the course of the year Ben completed over 42 hours of learning with many different course achievements.
Ben Thompson, Marketing Manager at Pagabo, said: “We find working with the University of Hull to bring in placement students for our marketing team to be a really successful process.
“Ben was a prime example of that, and a pleasure to have working in the team last year. It was really rewarding to see him develop over the course of the twelve months, we hope that it has stood him in good stead for his final year.”
As well as the design element of the placement, Ben also took part in creating charity ideas for Pagabo, such as its bake-off event in which he helped raised money for the Pagabo Foundation during lockdown in April.
Ben was also given the opportunity to attend multiple Built Environment Networking events before the national lockdown. These events provided Ben with more opportunity for networking and an opportunity for him to showcase his skills to others, as well as representing Pagabo to both clients and suppliers.
As Pagabo continues to grow as a business, it has now welcomed University of Hull marketing student Charlotte Andrews to its team for a year-long placement.
Charlotte is now around three months in to her 12-month stint at the business.
