I really enjoyed my time as an intern at the Financial Conduct Authority. I have been given a lot of responsibility over the 10 weeks that I have worked but with a good support network from my team and the recruiting team. I have liked the varied types of work that I have been doing and the flexibility of the internship programme to allow you to work within other teams and/or departments.
I found my placement an enjoyable experience. I always had work to do so I was kept busy throughout my internship. I was given opportunities to get involved with things that I was interested in which made it more interesting for me. My team was supportive and always willing to share their experiences.
I enjoyed the internship very much, it was very interesting and I was always doing something. I was never bored, and my managers provided activities that allowed me to see what it would be like to work within enforcement on a normal day. I would recommend this internship to others.
I thoroughly enjoyed the insight week. It allowed me to see what it would be really like working at the FCA. For a person who didn't know much about what the FCA did or how they operated, the insight week allowed me to develop knowledge about the financial sector and if it would be a role that i would be well suited in.
Being a part of the FCA insight week was a truly enjoyable and interesting experience. Firstly, it was great to meet 25 other woman who are too interested in finance and have a want to be successful in their future work - I learnt a lot from them just as much as I did from the talks FCA provided. I gained a good feel for the culture of the FCA, as well as being informed about a wide range of departments and networks.
I enjoyed various aspects of the internship. On the days where I was busy and given real responsibility, I enjoyed the work that I carried out. Conversely, there were some days that I had little to do, and hence those days weren't as interesting or enjoyable. I also enjoyed it given how easy it was to talk to people about their different areas of the business - employees were generally very willing to go for a coffee to offer their help, advice or knowledge. Having graduate buddies was also a good aspect of the programme, as it allowed one to get to know other graduates working in various divisions.
I enjoyed my internship to a large extent. I was given challenging tasks, the allocation in which I have had a significant say. The work stream varies between departments and teams, but I was lucky enough to be placed in possibly one of the busiest teams in the organisation, which led to me receiving tasks that are both challenging and valuable to my team.
It was a great opportunity to engage in interesting work and gain a better understanding of what the FCA does. There were opportunities to engage with people across the FCA, and it was good to be part of a group on 20 other interns over the summer. My work required me to think carefully about the applicable regulations and the available evidence about the activities of relevant firms.
I really enjoyed my internship. It was challenging at times but was very rewarding and I learnt a great deal about working in that sort of environment. The team I was placed in was supportive and made me feel valued, I was given a really great amount of responsibility ,and while I mostly worked on one big project I was free to support others on their projects which resulted in a nice variety of work.
I thoroughly enjoyed my work placement at the Financial Conduct Authority. I was exposed to a wide variety of work streams and projects within my department and had the opportunity to work with different teams to get a wider perspective of how the department works as a whole. I was also able to complete work shadowing in other departments and even do a “swap” with another intern for a day to gain further knowledge of the organisation.
I believe the internship program was valuable and surely will help me in the future. I have enjoyed my time here, not just for the work that I was involved in, but through engagement with people from wider organisation, shadowing a number of colleagues and engaging in social activities such as boat parties and dinghy sailing
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the FCA. I felt like I was appreciated and always kept busy and was constantly learning new things throughout my time here. The work itself was thoroughly interesting and non repetitive so I felt like I was never bored or found my self just twiddling my thumbs. I would highly recommend an internship here at the Financial Conduct Authority. . .
