    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the virtual experience?
  • Very well structured, with lots of well timed breaks. Felt like a much better, more cohesive and structured experience than other virtual internships based on what my friends have explained their experiences to be.

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

  • 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?
  • The experience was perfect in showing the kind of working environment and ethos of the company, and we were able to speak to so many different people that it was definitely as if we were getting the full picture of the company.

    5/5

  • 9. How much did the virtual experience help you in understanding the company culture?
  • By having talks about more than just roles and about other activities that employees partake in (like training, and BoB), we could really see the kind of attitudes that the company values, and gave an amazing insight into company culture. As well as this, the Diversity and Inclusion talks gave a great indication of how inclusivity and community is valued in the company too.

    5/5

  • 10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?
  • Very helpful - this has been my first real exposure to FinTech formally, and it's really helped me to know that this is what I want to do in the future. Along with this, we were given the opportunity to complete BMC, which gave a deeper education into Finance.
