The Company

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

An easy environment to work in, also the opportunity to speak to all colleagues in the office.
5 /5

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

Really enjoyed my internship and very glad to be joining BDO as a graduate. The only flaw in my opinion was the lack of communication/schedule of the away trips we had in Birmingham/London- it would have been better to be told about the social events and sleeping arrangements beforehand.
4 /5

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

It was very obvious that the firm was willing to provide the interns with an invaluable and enjoyable experience. Colleagues invested time with me showing me how to complete tasks, the equipment provided was new and in great working order and the social aspects really allowed interns to form social circles.

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • There were no perks with this Internship
