I co-ordinated Return to Office for the Barclays Platforms Team, working closely with the rest of the Business Management team. I gathered information from Real Estate and Group Technology, surveyed Return to Office requirements/preferences for employees and prepared presentations for Senior Leadership weekly.
My organisational and presentation skills have improved significantly. I have become a confident networker and learnt how to present myself in meetings with senior staff.
I was very lucky that my line manager and head of department were very trusting in me. I was given the opportunity to present to senior management regularly and I always felt my role was meaningful and made a difference.
I had daily meetings with my line manager, who was hugely supportive. I always felt I could reach out to anyone in the Business Management team for support and guidance.
Positive - everyone was very enthusiastic to meet new interns and genuinely wanted you to learn and succeed.
I really enjoyed it - I met fantastic people and had the opportunity to do much meaningful work.
Listen to feedback - everyone there has more experience than you and wants you to succeed so don't let your ego stunt your progress.
