The Role

Role Description

I was in retail banking, so was situated in a GCB 4 branch. I was given a project to complete for the branch, as well as having a check list from the internship coordinators to complete, and a charity challenge to organise. I was also regularly needed on meet and greet, and just tried to help where I could.

3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

My manager was away for 3 weeks of my internship and I wasn't really given a replacement one. So I did not get many one on ones, and sometimes felt lost as to what I was supposed to be doing
