The Role

Role Description

Spent three weeks working in a tax department doing the work that a first year joiner would do (tax computations, research, attended meetings etc). Second three weeks were in a risk department (enterprise risk services). I visited client sites to assist with their risk assessments and putting measures in place, wrote (and presented) a presentation on one area of the service, attended meetings and shadowed a partner.

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

Very impressive scheme, everyone was really friendly and encouraging. The work was generally both realistic and interesting. One week was a disappointment as there was nothing for me to do at the client site that I was sent out to, which was very boring and frustrating.

Generally very very good, apart from one week I was sent to a client site to help with a team who couldn't find anything for me to do.

9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

I was given a week of induction training, but most of the learning was done 'on the job', the high rating given is due to the effort that everyone I worked with put into helping me to understand the work I was doing- very much a learning culture.
