I found the team friendly and they quickly made me feel part of the team. They were all very approachable and helped me in developing my skills and knowledge within Social Media Marketing.
Everyone at ICAAL are so friendly, helpful and it really is a nice, positive working environment to be in, I enjoyed every second of it. I feel I learnt a lot throughout my week here.
