Role Description

Sales and Trading

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

It's been an enjoyable experience with very interesting and diverse people. Everyone has been very helpful and willing to be patient, especially for those with non-finance or economic backgrounds.


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

I felt very part of the teams I was in for both rotations. I felt that I was asked to complete a meaningful piece of work for my project.


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

I was given a good amount of independence to find the answer for myself but also enough guidance so that I didn't feel lost or discouraged.


4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I think I haven't had a lot to do but this hasn't been an issue as I have been proactive in asking for more work or if team members need help.


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

I was responsible for my work schedule and ensuring I completed things on time.


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

I believe I have learnt to truly push myself and to step out of my comfort zone in order to grow.


The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Everyone is incredibly nice. Everyone is very friendly and open and engaging and willing to answer questions.


8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

Everything was very well organised - the only issue I had was the initial training which I think could have been more specialised and better catered for a specific area.


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

I feel that I have been encouraged to step out of my comfort zone and push myself to new limits and learn new things.


10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Subsidised/Company Gym
  • Company Parties/Events
  • Staff Sales/Staff Shop

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

I would very much like to continue working at this firm.



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

The interns created a network for us to hang out after work.


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

I lived at home


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

Broadgate Circle is very active and we are also within walking distance from Shoreditch.


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

There's a lot of social responsibility programmes to be involved with which are good.
