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

I got on fantastically with my team and we bonded well. I was sad to leave them at the end of my internship. I felt I added value to the office through the tasks I completed for them, however the work completed could've been more complex and less menial in order to feel truly like an equal with my colleagues

8/10

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

Support from the central internship management team was second to none. In the office the support was lacking at first which meant I had to create good connections with those in my team in order to get the support I needed. But this is normal for any working environment and is part of the journey of an intern.

6/10

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

At first I wasn't busy at all and I had to ask for work and find ways to occupy myself. I wish I had been given more actual tasks and projects in the beginning as this led to me not enjoying the first few weeks massively. Nearer the end I was a lot busier however I feel like I expected more work from an internship at HSBC.

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

I was left unsupervised to complete most of my work and I had a lot of interaction with clients and key stakeholders

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