    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • Overall it was a really good internship, well thought out and executed. In particular the rotation program was beneficial as it allowed you to get exposure to different areas of the banking industry, allowing you to get a better understanding of the industry.

    4/5

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • Really valued! The internship program was quite small, hence you were the only intern with one a team at any one particular time. As such asking questions, advice etc. was easy to do, and most team members are happy to take the time with you.

    4/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • In both of my rotations there were people on the team that went above and beyond to help me understand the product area, and finance in general. I scheduled coffees and lunches with members of the team regularly just to ask about their product area etc.

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • Normally quite busy, like anything though the trick is to make sure you ask for work, and keep learning while on an internship.

    4/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • Not high levels of responsibility, but that can be expected on an internship. Most of my tasks involve writing internal team memos, updating powerpoint decks, attending meetings etc.

    4/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I really like to think I developed a wide range of skills on the internship, including powerpoint, excel, how to manage time efficiently, acting professionally in a work environment etc.
