I felt integrated into the team from the word go, and was not treated like an addition to the already established team. I was given projects to own and was given just the right amount of responsibility. The people in my team are so welcoming and have only ever wanted to help. I could not have asked for a better Line Manager and Team to work with.
I struggled because I was placed in a very isolated accommodation at the beginning and therefore transferred cities 2 weeks in. Coming to Lloyds in Halifax (a commute) has not been enjoyable, having spent the first couple of weeks working away from the team because the area was too busy and I initially needed a monitor. The work was tedious (counting words on a page and filling them into a database all day everyday for weeks) and I failed to learn a lot about the business or feel comfortable to ask for shadowing time because of the near deadline for such a large amount of work. However once that was done the work got slightly more interesting as there were more meetings and variety, which made the end of the internship more enjoyable.
8, found the work extremely interesting and placed me into a role which matched the skill set I submitted to Lloyds. The people were incredibly friendly and I feel as though they taught me a lot through out my time working with them.
I enjoyed the challenging nature of the work as I was able to learn a lot from it. Was also given a lot of support from my team which helped me enjoy it. Would have liked more variety in my day to day tasks as a lot of them involved spread sheets and working with data.
My colleagues were great. The work was mainly accounting and as I actually want to do Physics, I did not enjoy it as much as someone else may. It was 9-5 but my line manager is flexible as long as you get the tasks done which is good. I had the opportunity to experience lots of different areas of the business which is interesting.
I really enjoyed my placement at LBG. I felt as if I was of actual value to my team and really helped to make a difference on the projects I was working on. Everyone was really helpful and I feel like I've learnt such a huge amount about working for LBG in such a short amount of time.
I enjoyed my internship immensely. During my time working for the bank, I was able to adopt a great deal of responsibility for the tasks I was required to complete and was able to build and develop skills effectively which will be extremely useful in the future. Furthermore, the people and culture of the bank made a substantial difference to my time at work.
I greatly enjoyed my placement in Mid Markets Sales - Commercial Banking - Financial Markets - Midlands, East and South West England. The team are so supportive that, even when presented with a somewhat tasking or challenging project, I could work with the team to help me and develop my skills.
Overall, I would say I thoroughly enjoyed my internship. I learnt a lot of new, exciting things and got be part of helping Britain prosper plan through the charity challenge which allowed me to collaborate with fellow interns and network. I also got to see the Lloyds values in action and areas that could potential be improved or simplified. I developed personally and gained a lot of transferable skills that I will certainly take forward
My placement was extremely enjoyable. The work allowed me to use my technical expertise, while my colleagues gave me the freedom to solve problems in ways that I felt comfortable with. Socially the office was a very friendly environment, and there was lots of support available from graduates and other interns. I felt like it was a great opportunity to develop logical, business and social skills.
I really enjoyed the internship, it has been a great 10 weeks. The time has went really quickly and doesn't feel like summer is almost over. Although I am disappointed I have to leave, I am looking forward to using the skills I have learnt to further my university studies and future career.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent at the bank as a Relationship Manager in the Commercial Banking - SME, Professional and Financial Services department. I have enjoyed all aspects of the role, although the mandatory training was slightly tedious. Nevertheless I have learnt considerably from my experience and am very much interested in working with the bank in the future.
Work was very engaging and stimulating. A key aspect of the Lloyds internship is having many other interns working at the same time period and same region as you. This is very useful from a networking perspective as we meet lots of other interns. Accommodation is provided which is great.
It largely depends on the team, but my team has been more than welcoming and warm to me. In general, Financial Institutions is a great department to work for, as people here are genuinely lovely and friendly and willing to talk to you at any time - not sure about other departments.
On the one hand, the internship was enjoyable as it gave me insight into the banking industry, something I had never previously considered. I learnt a lot about the inner workings of the bank and could consider numerous challenges that banks will be facing in the future. However, due to an unexpectedly low workload and various stress with the agencies Lloyds employ to manage their contractors, I spent most of my days with no tasks to complete or having to argue with agencies. This lead to unnecessary stress / ill mental health and overall gave me a negative experience.
Overall, I enjoyed my placement. There were times when I felt I could have done with a bit more guidance and initially I was not given very many tasks so I struggled to find things to fill my time. However as the internship progressed, I was given more work and felt more comfortable within my team and so the placement became much more enjoyable for me.
