About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

I enjoyed a lot this experience especially given the amount of things I have learned and the friendly environment of my team.
I also had the opportunity to interact with many divisions and different roles in the organization.
I also enjoyed being exposed to daily activities as well as ad hoc projects.


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

More than I expected. Rather then being given dull tasks, I was assigned to projects that really had a value added for the team in their analysis of risk and interaction with the front office.


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

I was supported a lot not just by my to mentors but also by other members of the team and employees, at all levels, in other divisions such as IT and Operations.


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

They will not help much in my studies but they will be helpful in any future career and especially if I will manage to join the Financial industry.


The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

It wasn't very structured. It was more of an on demand basis job; but there was always something to be done.


6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

Very cooperative and friendly. My colleagues were always supportive and relaxed. In general there was agreement every time with the other Risk Managers. it was very easy to talk with them about hobbies and things outside of work.


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

They invested a lot in the training and seemed to be willing to invest as much as I could require.


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?

To a certain extent but not completely given that I performed more one-off projects rather than the daily routine of a risk manager, with some exceptions.


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

A lot and it was evident since the beginning. The company expects results but doesn't pressure employees excessively.


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

A lot as I now have a clear view on this role in a bank and I would like it to be my future career
