Student Placement

Tonbridge and Malling Digital Developer

I work for Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council in their IT services department as a Digital Developer. One of the projects I am currently working on is redesigning and building a new Intranet so that all staff members have access to up to date information and the latest version of a form which is part of another project that I am working on, converting internal paper forms to forms that can be accessed and filled out all online via the intranet.

In this role I get to meet various different people from all areas of the council, I also get to attend the workshops put on by Kent Connects and meet the other placement students and discuss what we are working on at the various different councils we work for.

A placement with Kent Connects is a great opportunity to put into practice what you have learnt at University the past 2 years, at Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council I have also been able to build on that knowledge and learn new things.
