The Role

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

I greatly enjoyed my time working here over the Summer. I found the work interesting and challenging. There was enough work to feel busy but I felt swamped. I have met so many amazing people throughout a variety of service areas. There was also lots of social events to get involved with.

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

I was given a good amount of responsibility over my internship. This was mainly through the team handing over a number of tasks to me that I was then responsible for completing. Though I was responsible for this work the team were still very happy to coach me through it when needed.

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

I think I have learned a lot over the course of my internship. Not only have I developed a number of technical skills but my knowledge of audit as a whole has greatly improved. I feel that these skills and knowledge will be a great help in my studies and beyond.

Social

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

There was a great social scene. There were a large number of other interns in my office. The associates led a number of social events which were great fun. There was a also a number of company organised events that we attended. Overall there were lots of opportunities to get involved socially.

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

I was based in London so generally it was quite expensive. There are obviously a large amount of unavoidable costs such as living, food and transport. Socially we made an effort to avoid the more expensive areas in order to make the most of our time and there were a number of reasonable places we could go.

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

London has a great night life set up. There a huge number of pubs and beer gardens open every day and there a good culture of socialising after work in the city. There are lots of clubs and a huge comedy and theatre scene that is very easy to get involved with.

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