Really enjoyed the projects I have been getting involved in over the 10 weeks as well as living in halls in London. There were times where I was really struggling to find work and this led to some slow afternoons but this was definitely not often. Only 7 because I do find being static and staring at screens all day quite frustrating at times.
I have really enjoyed my placement, especially the opportunity to explore a new city. I do wish there was more structured work for me to do during my time here, such as set work for all finance interns so we learn more about all the different finance functions not just our teams. I also think it would have been better if more effort was made into making sure interns met each other, for example by hosting events.
I enjoyed gaining leadership skills as part of being team leader for the charity challenge. I also enjoyed having the freedom to be able to shadow people and organise my time independently. Getting to know the group has been valuable to me, even though I know banking isn't my intended career route.
Overall I definitely enjoyed the internship, I liked that it is what you make of it, in that you can push for work/shadowing in different areas so you aren't limited to the team you're placed in. I also enjoyed how much I learned from the internship.
I really enjoyed the internship. This was my first internship, and I was able to learn a lot of new skills that can be transferred into work in the future. I also learnt a lot about the working environment in an office, as well as the about the bank itself.
I had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects across various teams. This has enabled me to get a good exposure on the different services that the bank offers. Moreover, as my colleagues were all very helpful I have managed to get a very good understanding of how Lloyds works. Overall, I have enjoyed my time here.
Overall the internship has been very fun and my colleagues have made a comfortable environment for me. It has been very rewarding for me, helping to identify my career goals both within and outside of the group. My only complaint is that sometimes I am left with nothing to do, especially if my line manager is away.
The placement was enjoyable due to the networking element, as I found I met many different people from various walks of life who I enjoyed learning from. I had never heard of some of the roles so it was very beneficial to chat to them. I also enjoyed day to day work, although overall the best part of the internship was when I was off desk at meetings etc.
I would argue that i enjoyed my placement to a large extent, this is because my team did a lot to get me involved. They made me feel like a part of the family straight away. In addition to this my manager was so caring and understanding towards me, so I really enjoyed it.
This internship has aided me in my development, where I have been able to build up a better understanding of Business Risk within Retail Banking. It has also provided me with an insight into numerous business areas and has allowed me to gain exposure to parts of the bank that were of interest to me. I was fortunate enough to work with colleagues across the Group, travelling to offices in Cardiff and Leeds, both of which were extremely valuable experiences for myself.
The work I was tasked with doing was interesting and stimulating. The placement offered the chance to get to know one role in relative depth, shadow people from other business areas and organise fundraising initiatives for the company's partner charity. This experience provided a good insight into the business, and allowed us to develop a breadth of skills. I really enjoyed working on projects within my team and will be sad to leave!
I had a great time at Lloyds working in the Commerical Real Estate area of the bank and sitting in global corporates. The Internship gave me a large amount of insight into not only Lloyds but into the general banking sector. I learnt a lot on many different topics and got challenged throughout with plenty of work and interesting topic.
I thoroughly enjoyed my placement in LBG. All teams were lovely and incredibly welcoming. They were extremely helpful in terms of helping me with any tasks I needed assistance on and explaining their roles within the bank to further my knowledge on the banking industry, as I do not come from a study background to do with banking.
I really enjoyed my placement. As a scholar, the referral process is slightly different to interns but I feel the emerging talent team really listened to my application. I felt challenged by the job in a way I could develop my skills and really enjoyed the experience as a whole. In general, I have no complaints.
I was fortunate enough to have 4 days worth of business trip from my usual working location in London( Bishopgate). One was at Cheadle and the other at Solihull. They were very useful in terms of my development and I gained a lot of experience as well as networking on a huge scale!
The placement was an entirely enjoyable experience. Upon beginning, I had very little knowledge of and experience within the banking industry. As a result of this, a large proportion of the placement was made up of learning about the inner workings of a bank and the products offered by Lloyds. This has been extremely beneficial for my greater understanding of the financial industry and has ensured the placement has been worthwhile.
I really enjoyed my placement as it allowed me to gain valuable insight into the finance sector and see if I could see myself working in banking in the future. I was doing fulfilling work that actually contributed to Lloyds Banking Group rather than just sitting around making teas and coffees.
