    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • There were 4 days of training followed by 5 weeks split across two projects. For the projects, I joined engagement teams working on client projects. My role involved assisting with creating slide decks and spreadsheets, running morning team huddles and presenting some of my work within the team. I also attended client meetings to shadow and sometimes take notes.


    Skills

  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • I have developed my confidence in communicating, both verbally and via written means. I have also improved my skills in google suite, increasing my speed in slides and proficiency in sheets. I also had a brief insight into PowerBI and Tableau, both of which were new software for me.

    Responsibilities

  • 3. Were you given much responsibility during your placement / internship?
  • There we some tasks which I had autonomy over and felt personally responsible for, however they tended to be smaller tasks than I felt capable of. I was given the responsibility of hosting a couple of huddles, which was welcomed.
