    Operations interns really get the chance to grow as a professional through this role. They are given plenty of opportunities to take on roles of high responsibility and your supervisor is always there to help you improve. There was a great amount of focus on the individual development of the interns which is very important for future work. The staff are lovely both at the managerial level and on the shop floor level.

    Cons

    It rains quite a bit in Wales.
