I enjoyed the easter insight very much. This is because it allowed me to gain a true insight into the banking industry, especially RBS, which is the main reason I applied for the program. I would say the program was well planned. I was able to learn a lot about the work and life at RBS and at the same time, gain many skills that will be useful in whatever work I embark on.
The week was very enjoyable. I now have a good understanding of the different sectors within RBS which I lacked before. It means that I can now have a better idea of the area I would potentially like to work in. Although there was not much actual work that we did, the week served its purpose by providing the opportunity to experience to meet employees and experience the ethos of the company which was friendly and welcoming.
It was a great insight into the industry. The training days were very useful. The networking training day was a little long on just one topic and some of it was reasonably obvious but it was still a useful reminder. The technical training was fantastic. The work shadowing was the best part of the experience. It was great speaking to members of each desk and really finding out about the different jobs available.
