I loved it! A fantastic way to decide if a career in finance was for me before committing to a full time position
My Colleagues in my first rotation were good, One was unfriendly and unsupportive but everyone else more than made up for it. In my second rotation I felt valued and supported by my colleagues. They were fantastic and thought me so much more than I could have expected.
I had 2 rotations, In my first one of the Directors was not amazing but he did push me to do more and do better. In my second rotation, the management gave lots of good advice and supported me through my learning.
I was quite bored on my first couple of days of Business as Usual but after I was assigned my own responsibilities I was kept busy.
I was given essential BAU tasks and allowed to work on Important projects.
SO SO Much more than I expected.
Friendly, We took part in team building activities. However, the emphasis on after work networking drinks was not appealing to me. The breakfasts and seminar series were super helpful for developing my network
Super well organised
They put me through 2 days of intensive training which allowed me to learn how all the departments interacted with each other. I was encouraged to do online learning and complete the Bloomberg Market Concepts course.
I was offered a full time graduate position
More so if you drank but the interns often had lunch tougher. I made very good friends with one of my fellow interns, keeping in touch after the rotation
Central London is expensive. The remuneration was good & allowed me to enjoy my time.
Theatre land is very close and I made the most of it whilst i could.
I took part in the ZSL river clean up which was really good. It was fantastic to see the company investing in the environment.
