Goodbye, Metro

After five fantastic months at Metro, it was time to say goodbye on Thursday.

I started my placement last October as part of the Daily Mail sub-editing trainee scheme and it’s been educational, exciting and fun.

Metro is basically a subs’ paper and there’s lots of collaboration. Ted’s fostered a great working culture here. There was always someone willing to help – whether that’s with coming up with a good headline, finding the right font or giving you feedback on style.

I’ve been very happy here and although I’m looking forward to starting at the Mail, it was hard to say goodbye. Thank you to everyone who made me feel so welcome and to those who helped me develop as a sub-editor, particularly Simon, who gives up so much of his time to help trainees.
