The Role

Role Description

we had 2 weeks of rotations and then we were allocated to a specific desk. we had to do some excel but it was mainly shadowing and learn as we cant trade!

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

i really enjoyed it. the people are gret and the atmosphere with the other interns was very good. the only thing which was a bit disapointed is the quantity of work... because we cant trade there is a lot of observation.

as a whole, very well organised. specifically on my desk a bit less due to the fact that our line manager was a bit to high up in the hierarchy.
