Role Description

Spring Intern

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

Very enjoyable. With regards to the other interns, I thought it would be a competitive and stiff atmosphere between us, but everyone was very friendly and personable, I made many great friends. The firm made each day varied and engaging, with some days ending in social drinks.


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

I felt valued (only to the extent a spring intern can be as we aren't contributing to any real work). We were paid, travel and expenses paid for and a hotel for those living outside of London. There was a lot of emphasis that we are the future of the business.


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

Any questions were answered, and there was always support, from other interns, to HR, to the business employees.


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

It helped me with finance modules, more from a qualitative point of view where I got to witness the very business that we were being taught about.


The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

Very well structured. Each day was varied and included different sessions from networking to panel discussions and interactive games.


6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

Very nice atmosphere, everyone got on well with each other and the business representatives were friendly.


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

They gave us technical training on different subjects of finance such as equities vs. bonds, cash products vs. derivatives, the functions of each divisions etc. Also gave us desk shadowing rotations in Global Markets and Corporate Finance. We were also given a presentation on some of the soft skills and how to dress / present yourself in the office.


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?

Desk shadowing was helpful for showing us what life is like on a day-to-day basis.


9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?

We were taught a lot about the culture and values through presentations and panel discussions but also got to witness the culture first hand through desk shadowing; which changes slightly from division to division and desk to desk.


10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

It helped me to confirm the division I wish to pursue in the future.


Other Information

11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?

Everyone was paid and daily travel expenses to and from the office was paid for. Some lunches were hosted by the firm. Those travelling from outside of London had a hotel paid and booked for us.

12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?

There was a lot of opportunity for this, the insight week had a networking event with business representatives, and desk shadowing allowed us to network on our desk.


13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

Networking events were good but there is the ratio problem of several interns to one employee so interactions can get cramped / awkward at times. Social event was enjoyable.


14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?

There were lots on sport and charitable activities and employees are happy to talk about it if you ask them.


15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

100% recommend. Very good insight with an opportunity to convert directly to summer offer which not every bank offers.
