Hi I’m Kilian, a 17 year old student from Germany. I had the great opportunity to spend a month abroad in the lovely city of Bristol and in the great company of ARAG UK.
I lived in a
nice apartment and met many interesting and nice Bristolian people. Apart from
my internship, I really enjoyed exploring the city and visiting the typical
sights of Bristol like the Suspension Bridge and the SS Great Britain.
I also enjoyed the Bristolian Night Life which is quite similar to the scene in
Germany. In my view Bristol really deserves it to be mentioned as one of the
best places to live in the UK!
working experience at ARAG I received various impressions of the insurance
business in the UK, about the market, the competition and the work with
solicitors and brokers.
great knowledge that was given to me, I was really impressed by the working
environment which exists in the company. It is very different to what I
expected a usual working environment to be because of the very friendly
relationships between the managers and their employees.
An event which will
stick in my mind forever happened in my second week when one of the managers
went round his department asking his employees whether he could make them
something to drink. Although this was just a small gesture I think is what
actually shapes a good working environment. I really appreciated the way the
guys treated me with respect and patience while sharing their knowledge with me
and how they worked together as a team instead of focussing on their own
the above, the four weeks I spent in Bristol and at ARAG have gone very fast
and I can look back to many kind people, many funny and interesting chats and
overall a very nice and exciting time, which I will always remember.
I want to
say thank you to everyone who was involved in my little journey and who made it
an unforgettable event.
forward to seeing some of you again sometime.
