The Role



The Role

Role Description

- Reporting
- Governance

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

Fantastic placement, hoping I get an offer to return - I'll be straight back!


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

In my first few weeks I frequently heard "how great the people are at Accenture" - I quickly came to realise how true this was.


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

I was given constant support throughout my internship from my direct line managers and HR.


4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Its a busy job - not going to lie, but its rewarding and the time flies by.


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

I was given a huge amount of responsibility, being repsonsible for all the reporting and governance for the project I was working on and dealing with the client on a daily basis.


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

Hand on heart I can say that I feel I have learnt more skills that are going to be useful later in life during my year with Accenture then I have at 16 years of school and higher education.


The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

This is low mainly due to the fact I was not based in the Accenture offices but on client site and so there is less "fun".


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

Certain areas for improvement that I have submitted to HR - so hopefully they will action these.


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

Good level of training - the real training comes into play once you return for the job.


10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Flexi Time
  • Subsidised Canteen
  • Sports and Social Club
  • Subsidised/Company Gym
  • National Travel
  • Financial Bonus
  • Company Parties/Events
  • Above 25 days holiday
  • Working from home
  • Healthcare from home

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

Been ofered a job with them - found out two weeks after the placement had finished.



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

Great group of interns who liked to enjoy what London had to offer.


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

Based in London - very expensive.


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

Good group of people on the first 6 months.


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

So many different opportunities for everyone to get involved with. I was involved with the Accenture rugby team.
