Role Description

1 week insight programme.

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

Very much so. It was very informative and I learnt a lot.


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

A fair amount, especially as a result of the work shadowing opportunities.

As much as we needed. A member of HR was always present to address any concerns.


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

The Fitch Learning session at the start of the week was really helpful, especially in terms of developing technical knowledge. The fact that we could take the materials away with us was also very helpful as we'll always have it to revise and refer back to.
