7/10

3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the virtual experience?

We had plenty of opportunities to ask question regarding the programs during the insight

8/10

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

I think in this area it could have been more extensive. I really enjoyed the ethical business session but wish we had more that maybe allowed us to understanding banking or any other sort of lecture like session that would have given us more useful skills that we could re-apply in our degree studies and beyond

The Organisation

5. How well structured was the virtual experience?

The structure was really good, and the sessions seemed to be quite flexible. It was a compact three day insight, but I wish there were more sessions

The atmosphere was great, all students were engaging and the speaker seemed passionate about what they do which gave the program a really good outlook

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

Since this was a short session it is hard to really expand on this, but I did get the sense of the Natwest group being interested in my development

5/10

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 found the sessions with the graduates to be really interesting as they gave a different type of insight compared to other speakers who spoke from a more technical side of the program. I would have like to learn more about the summer internship

9/10

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

Meeting the people who work there through the virtual experience was a great way to understand the company culture

8/10

10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

I think this event really grew my interest in the RBS graduate program which I knew comparatively little prior to this event

7/10

Other Information

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

N/A

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

I wish there were more opportunities to network with other students that were in the insight week experience, because of the super short sessions it was quite hard to reach out and communicate

5/10

13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

Could have been better through some sort of networking 101 sessions or just allowing students to connect with one another on a random basis to bond and learn more about the program together

5/10

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

Yes, I learned a lot about the volunteering opportunities that are very much a part of the RBS and natwest group culture

9/10

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

Yes I would recommend this to someone who is interested to particularly work within the Natwest group, but not for general insight into banking
