    The Company

  • 7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
  • They invested their time and effort in delivering the sessions. I was very happy to listen to a broad range of people within the bank and get a clearer image on how their role creates impact. I was very happy because I had some burning questions that I wanted to ask and I was glad that they were answered in a clear and concise manner.

  • 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?
  • Well like most virtual experiences, there wasn't that 'real feel' of their roles, however, the Bank's employees were amazing at creating a vivid image of their roles. For instance, there were quite a few speakers who outlined their roles and what they would do during and after working hours. It was very informative and helpful.

    5/5

  • 9. How much did the virtual experience help you in understanding the company culture?
  • A lot! I was very pleased to listen to the amount of support the BoE offers to their staff for example their work on mental health and well-being - it really made me feel that the bank treasures their employees. I was pleasantly surprised by how open the staff were and it really helped me understand about the Bank's culture.

    5/5

  • 10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?
  • Quite a lot of information was given at the start of the session, which I was happy about. I do wish there was a bit more information on the roles themselves i.e responsibilities. But other than that, it was quick, concise and to-the-point, which I really appreciated.

    5/5

    Everything Else

  • 11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?
  • This was a virtual experience (insight session), no payment or reimbursement needed.


  • 12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?
  • Yes, some allowed us to connect via LinkedIn. Since this was a virtual event, the networking was a bit hard, however, we did have the chance to interact by using the chat, but no real conversations. It was understandable though.

    4/5

  • 13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?
  • Again, since this was a virtual session, it wasn't very social.

    4/5

  • 14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?
  • Yes! I found out that loads of people work in charities to raise money for a greater cause and some help out their network for example, on events.

    5/5

  • 15. Would you recommend this virtual experience to a friend?
  • Definitely! It was a very eye-opening session, especially if my friends want to know a bit more about the bank and the people who make up the bank! It was a very insightful event and I felt like I understood more about the specific roles that the Bank has to offer.

    5/5
