2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

I definitely felt valued. People gave me jobs to do and were very positive about the work I did. KPMG has a great feedback system so when you do well, you find out about it and they also help you with development points.

10/10

3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

A lot. Everybody is so friendly and helpful and when you join you receive a buddy (somebody who joined KPMG within a year of your placement), a performance manager who goes through your feedback with you, and a people leader who looks after everybody in the department. There are lots of places to turn to for support.

4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

I believe the business skills and work ethic I have developed during my time at KPMG will aid me in my studies, future endeavours and graduate job.

The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

The beginning was slightly slow, with two induction days in a four week scheme. The first day was in the London office for everybody which was a good day. The second day we had our regional office induction. For me, I was then straight out on audit for the rest of my placement. However, there were also a few days during the four weeks such as a corporate responsibility day and a department away day at an activity centre. I thought it was well structured.

6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

Happy, friendly, yet still business. Several socials meant it was a fun four weeks.

7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

An expenses paid trip to London for an induction day. They put on several 'improving' days such as corporate responsibility and a department away day. I definitely feel like the whole vacation scheme was an investment in me.

8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

It definitely gave me a good idea of what working with KPMG would be like. They treated me as a full employee.
