A job involving working in the life insurance sector in areas such as reserving, pricing, modelling and working on solvency II compliance.

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

The placement wasn't hugely stimulating due to lack of work available, but the people were friendly and supportive and I could see that the type of work was interesting

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

Unfortunately many of the staff were away on exams/ study leave, but whenever I was given a piece of work supervisors would be happy and willing to answer questions

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Despite pushing for work, I was probably only working 50/ 60% of the time because of lack of jobs

2/10

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

Lack of work meant lack of responsibility in general, however, when I was given work I was often left to get on with it without being 'micromanaged'

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

The most useful thing I developed was an understanding as to what a full time job with Deloitte would constitute, but I also picked up some industry specific terminology and better proficiency with working with excel
