The Role

Role Description

Undertaking the work of a graduate in the audit department.

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

Found the internship very interesting as although I worked only in the audit department I was able to work on audits of a variety of companies and at different stages of the audit process. I was given a variety of tasks to complete and in the majority of the cases my work contributed directly into the audit file.

2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

Whilst working in the audit department I was continually given positive feedback about my performance and the standard of my work. This feedback came from newly recruited graduates right up to partner level. It was really good to know that my work had been reviewed by very senior members of staff and that my contribution was valuable.

3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

Each intern was matched with a 'buddy' to support them throughout the scheme. My buddy was really supportive and was able to resolve any issues I had. Alongside this several managers ensured the scheme ran smoothly and the interns were really getting involved with the audit work.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I found my days to be very busy. The work I was given required me to speak to various members of staff with deadlines to report back to management. However, the work was interesting therefore I didn't mind being busy!

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

The work I completed directly contributed to the audit process. My work was reviewed by senior members of staff and any issues raised would be sent back for me to complete. I was given whole sections to complete which would require direct interaction with clients.

9/10

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

Through direct exposure to the audit process and clients I believe I have developed my interpersonal skills. Due to being given sole responsibility of specific sections this has improved my organisational skills and time keeping.
