The Role

Role Description

A variety of different service lines to be part of and plenty of opportunity to change lines once part of the scheme.

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

Excellent interesting work. I was included on a number of projects and got to do some real hands on graduate level work to the point where one director didn't realise I was a scholar until 2 weeks into the project and had thought I was a graduate until then.

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

I felt very valued by colleagues. Of all levels they realised that the more they helped me and got me to do things the more competent I would become and therefore would be able to do more complex things. Everyone was happy to answer any questions I had and made me feel welcome.

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

The employees above me both directly and further up the ladder were very helpful and were always willing to answer questions I had. Also, as I was entering final year and therefore job applications, I had a number of offers to give me advice on applying to jobs both at the firm and in general.
