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

Whenever I had questions I felt comfortable enough to ask someone and people were happy to volunteer information about the department without me even having to ask.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I was very busy on a daily basis due to the team I joined having just won a project. This meant that I was well utilised and that there were rarely ever moments when I had nothing to do.

10/10

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

I was given quite a sizeable about of responsibility in spite of the fact that I had just joined this department. This was hugely encouraging and showed that the team trusted me to support them on major deadlines

6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

The experiences I have had tie in perfectly with my course, Economics and Management. A lot of what I have been doing will inform the approach I take to certain modules within my course and increase my understanding of the real life implications of what I am studying

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

There was a really genial and affable atmosphere in the office, with people asking others how they were and stopping to catch up with people. However, when it was time to get down to the work, people did take that seriously and focus on the task at hand

6/10

8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

The very nature of the department meant that it was hard to predict where exactly I would be needed most and therefore we played it by ear in terms of where I was based at different times. However, this actually enhanced my experience of the department and gave me an indication of what life is really like in this department

6/10

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

The firm spends an incredibly amount on its interns and invests a lot in them both in terms of training and the pay that we are given each month. This scheme is very generous which then motivates me and others to work harder to impress the company

10/10

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Flexi Time
  • Subsidised Canteen
  • Subsidised/Company Gym

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

The future prospects within the firm are excellent especially if you have been on the scheme that I have been on. If you return to the firm, you are likely to be put up for early promotion and the work experience you have already done contributes to professional qualifications one may want in the future

9/10

Social

12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

There were so many activities available for me to take part in: during my time I got to go on a client networking event that involved racing around on soapy inflatables; after work drinks and general celebrations within the department. There is even a department ski trip!

10/10

13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

London is very expensive to socialise given the price of transport and drinks however the partners at the company were incredibly generous and often offered to cover the cost of food and drinks.

6/10

14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

London night life is simply brilliant - the sheer variety of venues to go to are staggering. If you have the time and funds, London can be one of the best places to spend a night out.

10/10

15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

There are an array of extra curricular activities for people to get involved with: from Deloitte Choir to Deloitte Football, there is something for everyone. Deloitte also encourages people to get involved in charity projects and supports them while they do this.
