Really enjoyed my internship, I was challenged in my work but also felt very welcome by members of my team. The work I did was very useful for improving my knowledge of the asset class and the market I was working in. The Internship development programme was also useful to structure my internship
From the induction day at the very start it was clear I was going to enjoy this internship! The work was extremely varied and I was made to feel a valued and important member of the team. The support in place, be it through my own team or the early careers department, was second to none.
SLA gave me a fantastic introduction to the world of asset management, and I thoroughly enjoyed the 10 weeks I spent there. My colleagues were fantastic, and I was given the chance to develop my skills by working on real problems, as well as having autonomy over a project for the duration of my internship. I would highly recommend the experience.
Really enjoyed the internship. I was in the investments division. My specific team was extremely welcoming; everyone was happy to have a chat about themselves and their career; I was also invited to plenty of external meetings with team members I did not even directly work with on a daily basis. Overall, great internship.
I really enjoyed my internship and the various learning workshops which were organised to encourage us to build our network of contacts and develop our business skills. I respected their interaction with charity groups and the day we spent helping on a local farm which targets homelessness in the local community.
I really enjoyed my time at Standard Life Aberdeen. I was working in the Aberdeen Standard Investments part of the company, on the Business Operations Summer Internship stream. The work was enjoyable, and the intern programme run by the HR team was excellent and you received lots of training across the 10 weeks.
The Summer Internship at Aberdeen Standard Investments was a fantastic way to gain an understanding of the company and all of its capabilities. There was a great mix of group learning as well as time spent in my allocated team working on tasks and contributing to the team progress. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming.
I was given meaningful work throughout the internship, which made every day in the office exciting and enjoyable. I also got the opportunity to meet with some leaders in the organisation and get involved with opportunities outside of the office, such as a Volunteering Day at Cyrenian's Farm. Overall, it was very enjoyable!
I thoroughly enjoyed my internship with Standard Life Aberdeen. I came into my internship open-minded and had very few expectations of the process; however, I have been incredibly pleased with the process as a whole. This is due to: • The level of respect and responsibilities given; • An inclusive and welcoming team/culture; • A sense of value from the company; and • Ease of interaction with senior individuals
I thoroughly enjoyed my internship at Standard Life Aberdeen. The team I was placed in were welcoming and supportive and I found the work that I was doing to be both interesting and appropriate to my skills. As the internship went on, I felt that I was able to make real contributions to my team and enhance a variety of my own skills.
Amazing experience overall. Lot of support throughout the internship with various events ranging from networking sessions to speeches from senior leaders. The work was interesting and stimulating and the people were particularly helpful and welcoming regardless of their divisions.
I really enjoyed the Investment Analyst placement with Aberdeen Standard Investments. Over the 10 weeks I made great friends with fellow interns and existing employees, and my desk were very welcoming. The 10-week project that I was given and the end of internship presentation meant that I was given ample opportunity to showcase my abilities.
