My role involved looking at firm portfolios and business models Completing my own supervision cases Writing note for records for various FCA internal and external meetings
I have developed my analytical and data management skills I have developed my time management skills I have developed my understanding of financial services and particularly compliance within the industry
Yes, I was given a lot of responsibility such as dealing with firm cases. This involved liaising with different people within the FCA and getting in contact with different firms in regards to compliance issues.
I was given a lot of support and guidance both by HR and my own team throughout the placement.
The company culture was really positive. It was a very relaxed culture which surprised me due to the stereotypes regarding financial services.
I enjoyed it a lot. It would've been better if we were able to come into the office more and meet some of the other interns, but overall it was a very good experience.
I would advise you do a lot of research on the firm. Show your willingness to learn and work hard. O would also advise you be yourself as the FCA are a very inclusive organisation.
