    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • The first day provided a fantastic overview of the bank as a whole, clearly detailing each department's role in the clockwork of a business. In terms of specific roles, Corporate Audit was one that seemed very exciting due to the wide breadth of knowledge gained. Technology was incredible - there seems to be a lot more risk management in this sector than originally thought. It's not all just coding 24/7 contrary to my belief!

    Culture

  • 4. What was the company culture and general atmosphere like?
  • A very inclusive and diverse culture. There was a clear sense of belonging from each employee which says a lot about the work the firm has put in to encourage acceptance for all. Senior members in addition to employees varied in gender, race, nationality etc. BOAML actually encourages an inclusive nature so that diversity is accepted by all. Hence, equal oppurtunites are provided and a fruitful community is made.

Show enthusiasm, energy and be humble and honest at the same time. Be yourself - it shows them your honesty !
