The Role

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

Overall an excellent experience, which has given me a good standing for the world of work - and the offer of employment after the seven weeks takes a huge weight off one's mind in the final year of university!

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

Interns are assigned to small teams who are working on tight deadlines - they are therefore valued as members of these teams, and are expected to contribute accordingly.

9/10

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

The people who supervise you depend on your clients. Sometimes it can be a recent graduate, sometimes a senior manager (though never a partner who as an intern you will hardly come across.)

8/10

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

As noted above you are expected to contribute to a small team.

8/10

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

Sometimes the responsibility could be too much. Especially if you are from a non-financial background it may take a while to get your head around what is being asked of you. While others will help where they can, they also have numerous things to get done for their line manager.

7/10

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

If you want to go into finance or business in general this is a useful placement - though it might not live up to expectations if you are looking for a more dynamic, cutting edge, or less-numerate internship.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Rarely spent much time in Deloitte office - most time is on client site - but everywhere I went had a fun and friendly atmosphere.

9/10

8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

Structured very well. Deloitte know what they are doing here, and you will get a wide range of experiences sorted for you. If you want to see something in particular they will go out of their way to help arrange it.

10/10

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

Whole first week was training and introduction. We received good pay, supplies and the use of a personal, new laptop.

9/10

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

0/10

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

Deloitte is well-known as being a world-class place to start a career in the financial sector. My internship confirmed this opinion.

9/10

Social

12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

Excellent relations between the trainees and fully qualified managers.

10/10

13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

Lived at home and travel outside the office was covered so I managed to keep most of my salary - not that it was anything to write home about.

10/10

14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

Didn't really experience it - but Manchester is a big party city.

8/10

15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

Not really that much - some people went along to office nights out on a Friday.
