I thoroughly enjoyed my internship. I was coached on a one to one basis by a number of the Corporate Managers, Wealth Managers and even the personnel in the Head Office. There were some dull moments, however banking isn't always glamorous. There was more than enough filing to be done!
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here at Handelsbanken and would highly recommend anyone to do an internship here. I have developed critical work skills, gained experience beyond the textbook and have built great connections with many talented professionals.
I mostly enjoyed my internship. The internship gave me an insight into many different areas of banking, with an element of private banking. It showed me what a career in banking might look like, by getting me involved in the day to day tasks that my colleagues did every day.
The internship programme is a great way to set out a platform for your long term goals. You are able to meet members from various departments which could be interesting for young people who know that they want to be in the banking sector but do not know what role they would be suitable for. My knowledge has been increased to a better level and I assure anyone who has the op[opportunity to do this internship will love it. I would highly recommend this programme to this to anyone who wants to gain some life time skills that they can then further develop.
I really enjoyed my time at Handelsbanken. The main part of the internship that made it so enjoyable was all of the people. Everyone was so friendly and willing to help if I ever had any questions. I was given plenty of work to be getting on with within the branch, as well as more structured projects all interns were given as part of the internship. This layout was perfect as I always had something to be getting on with.
I did enjoy it quite a lot as was always doing something different. It got more enjoyable as it progressed as you start to learn how to do things more and are given more responsibility. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere was also enjoyable. It gives you a chance to hear about what private banking is, but also the internship offered opportunities to get insight on to other aspects of banking. I was also able to go on lots of customer meetings which was fun.
I found the internship to be an incredibly valuable insight into the world of Handelsbanken UK. Handelsbanken differs markedly from your typical high street bank. Therefore, the internship was a great opportunity to experience working in an institution which prides itself on its traditional customer service and unique approach to banking.
Great structure to the internship in the sense that there was a good mix between 'tick box' tasks and also the freedom to do things to allow you to get out of it what you wanted. I really enjoyed being the only intern in the office: it meant I was given actual work to do which I know helped, it also lightened the load for the busy managers.
I thoroughly enjoyed my internship and the work I was given. I was able to work on both the IB and Corporate sides of the bank which gave me a really good and balanced understanding of how the bank and financial industry works. The structure of the internship was great as I knew what to expect from a week so I could plan my time and complete the projects too.
Really enjoyable internship. I had a really good time, the people were really nice and welcoming and have helped me along the way to learn how Handelsbanken works. The HR team did a really good job with the tasks assigned and I really enjoy working at Handelsbanken as its completely different from what everyone thinks banking is like. The family feeling of working in a branch, the responsibility for everything and really welcoming and approachable people make this a really amazing place to work at and I wish I could continue to do so in the future.
My internship was a lovely way to spend part of my summer. I learned even more about banking and Handelsbanken's unique processes and way of working. I found that it was really hard work (mainly just actually having to be somewhere for the majority of the day) but also very rewarding when given something useful to do.
I really enjoyed my internship at Handelsbanken as it allowed me to put the skills I had acquired over my first two years at University into practice. There was also a wide variety of tasks within the work place and this made it exciting as I was able to move amongst different departments.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Handelsbanken. I was an intern in the RA region (Bristol area, south Wales and the South West). There were around twenty interns in the region, and each branch welcomed one intern. Branches are of varying sizes: mine consisted of nine full-time staff, whereas others consisted of as many as twelve or thirteen and some as little as four.
Very much enjoyed the internship, all was run very smoothly. The tasks varied almost day by day and I was able to enjoy client exposure from an early stage. Every employee who I came into contact with made the experience welcoming and enjoyable, I would definitely recommend this summer internship.
