    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • The graduate recruitment team as well as other staff met in calls and networking provided valuable insight into understanding each role and what is needed for the role as well what is available. It was valuable knowledge as I believed it was very common and the natural typical path for these careers to come from graduates of Economics or finance however after this week I was proved wrong and any degree is valuable.

  • 4. What was the company culture and general atmosphere like?
  • The culture followed the roots of the firm. It had a very family feel to it and I felt very welcomed into the firm even for the week. Talking to people and understanding what the firm was like made me want to work there as mental health is so important; they have protected weekends, then the staff being so welcoming or the fact that employees tend to stay for years thus the atmosphere was brilliant.
