Role Description

Dealing with transfer pricing issues
Writing reports
Taking minutes
Looking up legislation in various books (Tolley's for example) and applying them to the client's specific situation.

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

It gave me a lot of first hand experience so I could see if the role was for me. Some of the work was boring, but it is to be expected - you are not going to be given high risk work as an intern.

2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

You will never be able to predict this - it depends on the size of your department, the complexity of the work, and even who's team you end up being assigned to. I felt valued and tasks were explained to me so I got them, but I know others that had different experiences.

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

I was assigned a buddy, who was a first year. She was really helpful and honest. I was also assigned a performance manager, who was nice too but also toed the party line more.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I was never expected to work any longer than 0930 to 1730.

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

I was given tasks to do that were important, but I could tell if I somehow managed not to complete them, it would be easy for them to quickly find someone else to do it, or do it themselves.

5/10

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

They did not actively develop skills I did not already have - it was more a case of getting to put those skills into practice in a professional environment. For that fact, it was useful.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Relaxed among people you knew, but quite serious otherwise. Deloitte seems to be a very driven place, which may sacrifices any sense of relaxation.

6/10

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

Quite organised. The onboarding process was good, we knew what to expect on Day 1 - they had great events to meet people. And being initiated into departments was good.

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

We had a few training sessions.

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Subsidised Canteen
  • Company Parties/Events

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

Quite appealling - GREAT brand on the CV and lots of opportunity within the firm.

8/10

Social

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

The interns were the BEST - we really bonded. I may keep in touch with actual staff after the internship but that would be more formal of course.

9/10

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

It's London - being on an internship did not really change the places I socialised in.

7/10

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

London - goes without saying! Just wish the Tube ran a skeleton service till 3am at the very least.

9/10

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

There are CSR initiatives and lots of volunteering. You can take your pick to be honest! I would like to get involved in graduate recruitment and taking the grads out to lunch and so on if possible.
