The Role

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

It was a great opportunity to learn about the life of an employee at a big 4 and the Corporate tax world as a whole. The work was immersive and reflected what the real job would entail.

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

I was treated kindly and almost as an equal by most. It was encouraging to receive so much responsibility and being asked to get involved in so many different projects. Everyone was gentle and supportive throughout the internship.

9/10

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

There were almost weekly drop-in sessions to catch-up with my supervisor and reflect on my progress. They even helped guide me on how to get involved more to get a better idea of the department and its workings.

9/10

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I had a lot of work for almost the entirety of my placement. There were a few slow days here and there but I would actively seek out work to fill in the time.

9/10

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

I was put in charge of a lot of important pieces of work. My position and experience obviously limited the extent of what could be done by me, but I recieved work that was pertinent to the projects I was put on.

9/10

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

This was an eye-opening experience. All my previous work experiences never provided me with an accurate representation of a working life and all the challenges and opportunities that come with it. This internship has given me confidence in my ability to perform in a professional setting.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

It is a work place so there is always a looming sense of professionalism but the ability to wear casual clothes and the friendly staff made it a lot more relaxing than some of the other companies I previously worked at.

8/10

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

There was a tried and tested system that seemed to have been working for a long time in place. There were never any delays nor confusion regarding the scheduled events. Everything was set-up and communicated effectively.

10/10

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

There were compulsory online training sessions that we needed to undertake in our spare time to familiarise ourselves with the Corporate etiquette and tax rules. However, some of these weren't applicable to the department I was working in and seemed tedious at times.

7/10

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Subsidised Canteen
  • Company Parties/Events
6/10

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

Deloitte Reading is a wonderful office with a lot of supportive and friendly employees that will help a newcomer settle-in well.

8/10

Social

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

Everyone got along well and we had lunch together everyday.

8/10

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

Reading isn't cheap but it isn't expensive per se. It is cheaper than London and food and drinks are reasonably priced. However, cost of living is pretty high.

7/10

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

Reading isn't known for its nightlife but has a lot of clubs that one can attend if they feel like it.

7/10

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

The limited placement time meant there weren't any other opportunities apart from those relating to any project I was working on.
