  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • My line manager was a very busy person so I did not do as much whorl with her as I liked, but she did plan for this in ensuring that another assistant manager worked with me a lot more.

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • I did find that I either felt like I was dragging through work knowing I didn’t have much, or rushed because I had too much - I think this was an issue to do with having various managers and assistant managers assigning me work which let to communication issues.

    2/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • I was surprised and very pleased at how much ‚real‘ work I was given to do - my main role during the internship was the preparation of tax returns which the permanent junior staff members also do, which made me feel very valued as a member of the team.

    5/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • The length of the internship and responsibilities I was given during it meant that this opportunity has been invaluable to put on my CV and talk about in future interviews etc., and even given me a possible career path as I very much enjoyed my experience.

    3/5

  • 9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • At the Start of the internship I spent a day in London learning more about each service line of the firm which was very interesting, and I also spent two full days with my buddy where she trained me.

  • 10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • I really enjoyed my experience and my insight into the firm as a whole does make me want to go back. I am very interested to look into their 4 year graduate scheme.

    The Culture

  • 12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
  • There were only 3 interns in my office. One of them I got on very well with but that was more us seeing each other than the firm encouraging us to socialise.

    2/5

  • 13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
  • Less expensive than London but Bristol is still quite expensive to live in.

    2/5

  • 14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
  • Bristol has a very good nightlife for young people, but it was the summer holidays so there were much fewer students around.

    4/5

  • 15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
  • During my 6 weeks there was an entire office social as well as a department social. Occasionally went to lunch with my colleagues too.
