really challenging, great opportunities
worked in a really supportive team, my manager and team were really helpful and approachable
a lot - they encourage you to be proactive, but yet are still there for support and guidance when you need.
we were told on the first day that this internship is what you make it - so if i found myself not busy, i'd go and ask for more work from the rest of the team.
initially they trained me up on their BAU tasks, but as i continuted to prove myself, they gave me more responsibility until i was revenutally running a whole trading process.
I'm doing an English degree, so wasn't sure how relevant it would be - i've learnt a lot of technical things, but won't be able to apply them to my course! however, i think i can bring some of my core skillset from my course into the bank - they like people with analytical skills not necessarily those from financial backgrounds.
great atmosphere - everyone was really approachable. although people were leaving throughout the summer in teams around us, that just gave more opportunity to get involved and get in front of managers.
there had obviously been a lot of planning from the recruitment team, and although it wasn't seamless, it was a full intineray for the 11 weeks.
we had a few days of induction, and then on the job training. there isn't a huge amount on the internship, they tend to invest more in your training once you're on the graduate programme.
really appealling - the grad programme is rotational for my area and gives a great opportunity to experience different types of roles that i could end up doing in my career
yes definitely - the grad team arranged lots of events, and we often went out every Friday as well.
Pretty expensive - but then again, it's the middle of London!
pretty great - but then again, it's the middle of London!
yes, both formally arranged as part of the programme and also with my team and with the other interns.
