Harriet Carter Planning Intern

The perks of being a Planning intern

Posted by danielle.gamage | 16 June

Another year has flown by and we have yet another send off for our intern, Harriet Carter as she returns back to Bournemouth University for her final year in Marketing Communication. Harriet spent 12 months in the Planning department of TLC Marketing, working on an impressive 60 brands. After a great send off at Pergola on the Roof, we sit down with Harriet for an exclusive interview about her time as TLC’s Planning intern.  

What was your favourite thing about working for TLC Marketing? 

From the very start, everyone was so welcoming. I'm so grateful to have worked alongside such talented people who are all so passionate. I have always felt like a valued member of the team. Not only have I done lots of work on lots of different brands but I have had a lot of fun here too, there is never a dull day at TLC.

What is the best thing about your role? 

No two days are the same. I have loved working on so many different brands. I think on my last count I had worked on 60 different brands ranging from FMCG to insurance and have got to attend about 30 different client meetings which has done wonders for my confidence. It’s been great having the opportunity to go out and see clients faces light up when we share the insight and analysis we've worked on. I even had the chance to sit in on a focus group with one of our clients which was amazing as I was able to see it done professionally for the first time.
