About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the virtual experience?

I found the whole experience really educational and rewarding. To organise a virtual experience in such a short space of time that had a great balance of being both informative and interactive is something that I think the whole NatWest group early careers team should be really proud of. I think the fun day Friday feature meant there was always something to look forward to at the end of the week and often gave us interns a great opportunity to socialise.

The Organisation

5. How well structured was the virtual experience?

The virtue experience was extremely well structured and the slides were always given to us in advance. Virtue experience could not be more well structured

10/10

6. How was the general atmosphere during your virtual experience?

Really friendly, I think the involvement of graduates is really helpful. In future there should be more event organised about networking and getting to know fellow interns if the intention is to offer them the graduate scheme at the end of the virtual experience.

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

There's been a huge investment by NatWest group, In times when other companies have cancelled their internships all together for them to push ahead with this and get speakers of such high quality for a full four week period is something that I never thought a bank would do.

8. To what extent did the virtual experience help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

I felt like in the space of time that we had I couldn't have a greater understanding.

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

From the first of meeting to the last culture was always something spoken about openly and I think this is really helpful.

Other Information

11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?

There were no expenses during my internship as it was virtual. However I was reimbursed a train fare for my interview.

12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?

Yes there were opportunities, but I really like socialising so I wish there were more so I wish there were more.

6/10

13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

There was opportunities but I think it would have been helpful for there to be more.

5/10

14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?

I think in a virtual experience that something really difficult to put across without it seeming forced. With the limited time that we had each day I'm sure that is not the priority and it is a bigger priority to learn about the culture of the business.

6/10

15. Would you recommend this virtual experience to a friend?

Yes without question.
