Nour, Work Placement from Mullingar Community College – Feb 2023 “I recently had the wonderful opportunity to work for two weeks with Mullingar Chamber. This was a hands-on experience in which I was able to learn more about how the Chamber of Commerce works to promote businesses and economic development in the area.

I was able to see first-hand how a chamber such as this is able to provide services to local businesses to assist with marketing, community relations, public relations, and more. The staff of Mullingar Chamber was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout my time, providing me with valuable information on all aspects of business development. From day one, I felt welcomed, respected, and truly part of the team.

The first week was largely working on the websites Mullingar.ie and Mullingarchamber.ie,  I get to correct false links and suggest new techniques that could be used to improve the websites, I also had the chance to work on various tasks, ranging from researching and developing strategic plans. I was able to use my experience and skills to come up with a viable solution.

My time working with Mullingar Chamber has been an enriching, learning experience for me. Serving as a student intern, I had the opportunity to work with a passionate and dedicated team of professionals and gain a better understanding of how a Chamber of commerce functions.

What was most enjoyable and enlightening was getting to know the members, Louise and Aisling and I would like to thank them for being amazing, thank you for giving the chance to work with you, your help is greatly appreciated”

Aisling Coleman, Manager at Mullingar Chamber. “Nour was always on time, she was mannerly and full of enthusiasm for any task that was given to her. During her time with us, she was reliable and resourceful. We were delighted to facilitate Nour with her work placement at Mullingar Chamber.
