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

Being an intern, I did not expect to have so much responsibility and be such a valuable asset to the team. I think the balance of coaching and self-learning during my internship was perfect to develop my skills.

10/10

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

I was given support my not only my own managers and senior associates, but also other colleagues that I had networked with on different clients. Everyone is willing to help no matter how simple your question may be.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

The work life balance at the firm is perfect, you are not expected to work over and beyond the hours assigned to your contract. In terms of workload, you always have something to do, which can vary from personal training, working on clients you have been assigned to or helping other client jobs when you are free.

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

You are given responsibility from day 1, such as contacting clients and being assigned work papers that you have to complete by a certain due date. You are treated not like an intern but a first year associate.

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

Training is given via a residential induction, a great opportunity to network and develop accounting skills if you come from a non-accounting background. I have developed a wide range of skills from client contacting to complex excel skills and look forward to taking my deep understanding of audit to my audit modules next year at University.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

The atmosphere in the office is really friendly and chilled. It was completely different from what I had expected. It is essentially one big university library with professionals and table tennis in the middle. Everyone is willing to chat to you from partners to associates. A atmosphere many will enjoy without a doubt.

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

The internship is very well organised. You first attend a residential induction where you are trained on how to use systems and basic accounting skills. You then come to office where you are assigned the clients you will be working on the next 5 weeks. You also get taken to lunch with the team to meet your managers which is also very fun.

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

The company invested in the residential training for three days at a really nice hotel, where everything was included. The company invest a lot into their associates from what I have heard from networking. They are graduate employer of the year for several years and this can be seen by the mood of the recently employed associates.
