“Quadrant2Design warmly welcomed me into their company for four months, but it has been so valuable and rewarding to both me and the company.

Even though I’m only a University student with little previous experience, they have been so encouraging in letting me voice my opinions and showing them my perspective. I have my own responsibilities within the company and I have a lot of freedom over what I’m doing here.

They have been great in encouraging me to make the most out of my time here, helping me to learn everything possible. My experience has gone beyond simple marketing, I’ve done interesting tasks such as SEO, link building, website maintenance and so much more- which is going to massively benefit me in my future career.

Quadrant2Design is a great place to work with great people, this company is perfect for a placement student.”
