Role Description

As an intern in Sustainability & Climate Change consulting, I got to work across different projects ranging from the use of emerging technologies to international development. The work is varied, quite technical, and wholly interesting.

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

I thoroughly enjoyed my internship! I learnt a lot about the various areas the team works in, as well as the skills that make a great consultant.

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

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

I really appreciated that we were given a buddy and a career coach. My career coach was extremely helpful to provide advice on how to make the most of my time at PwC. Having weekly meeting made me feel reassured and was useful to make sure I was on track.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I got the opportunity to work on various projects at the same time, which means that I did not have time to get bored! This taught me to manage my time efficiently and to balance priorities.

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

I was impressed by how much responsibility I was given through my various projects. I delivered research and my findings were included in final research outputs. I also got the chance to do several oral presentations to the whole team. I simply wish the internship was longer than 6 weeks so that I could deliver more tangible work throughout.

8/10

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

I have learnt especially how to manage my time, how to approach a topic I used to know nothing about, and how to engage meaningfully with my colleagues. I will take away these organisational and interpersonal skills in the future, wherever my career takes me.
