    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • Since it was virtual this mostly involved attending various presentations and networking events. There were many opportunities for one-on-one virtual coffees to get to know people across the firm, while also working within a team across the five days to deliver a short presentation. There were two written tasks that were timed and completed by all vac scheme students.
