Clear structure of reporting on the desk's performance for the previous business day before 12 noon. Report includes P&L, position and overall risk being taken by the desk. This is the main priority for the day, once this is complete then work on relevant projects to assess and improve the current reporting methodologies.
Days are very structured. Every morning you report on the day before's P&L which is due by 12. Then the afternoons are for development. Either learning about the role and the business at the start of your placement and then by the time you are up and running you then assigned projects that you can help with. There are at least 1/2 meetings a day as well. On teams or in the Office.
I really enjoyed my placement with RWE Supply and Trading. Placement students are given real responsibility as well as interesting, varied work that is appreciated by colleagues. The team I was in was extremely helpful and there is a great working atmosphere in the office.
I really enjoyed my placement at RWEST; the culture at the company is friendly and the placement focused on my professional development throughout. This is really positive, as it allowed me to develop and practice the key skills which are necessary to be successful in a career. The team I worked in were also very welcoming and open to my ideas, and the social elements of the placement were very positive. This allowed me to integrate into the team and this boosted my experience significantly.
The Industrial Placement Year at RWEST is a great opportunity for a student to develop as a professional. As a Placement Student, I was given increasing responsibilities and involvement, the chance to visit other offices, shadow different desks, and enjoy an open and collaborative culture.
I thoroughly enjoyed my year on placement with RWE supply and trading as I was given a high level of responsibility immediately and my colleagues were very nice to me. I was engaged and interested by my work and it’s opened my eyes as to what I want to do in the future. The programme was extremely well run and I would recommended the experience to anyone. I am hoping to return on the graduate scheme.
