The Role

Role Description

Working in teams on financial statement audits. Performing work on a number of counts and generally gaining an understanding of businesses.

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

I thought the internship was a great way to learn more about finance and get a little bit of money during the summer. I think what really makes it stand out was the people that I met. They made the difference.

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

Despite being with the firm for only just over a month, whenever I went to any of the socials, lots of graduates and seniors would speak to me and this really helped to make me feel valued there.

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

My line manager was so helpful and was my main source of pastoral care. I could ask her about anything and most of the time she gave helpful answers.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

I was predominantly busy but there was the odd day where I was unassigned. Usually I spent these days sorting out all of my admin, as there was a lot of it. I found the work balance tolerable.

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

There wasn't too much responsibility given the fact that I was an intern but it was a good experience none-the-less. I also had the chance to take on more work and I feel that they appreciated my proactive way to way.

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

The skills for life would be the communication skills which were really helped by the many networking opportunities. I would say my speed on Microsoft Excel has also taken a turn for the better!

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

The atmosphere was good. It was quiet enough to work without being interrupted but there were places to go for group discussions.

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

To my knowledge, everything seemed to run smoothly. It was very structured and I feel that it was structured well as we had training initially and then eased into our work.

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

The company provided knowledgeable seniors to coach me as well as pay for my training and the various social events during the course of the internship.

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

I was told that I had obtained a graduate job with them shortly after the internship.

Social

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

Placement students seemed to be like-minded so we often got together after work each week. This was pretty much the story over the few weeks!

8/10

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

London is not the cheapest, but hopefully you should not be too much out of pocket towards the end of the internship. I really recommend getting an Oyster for travel if you intend to live in London.

3/10

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

The nightlife was great where we were! Many bars, pubs and clubs for our perusal in Central London.

9/10

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

There were a few opportunities to get involved with the football team and a few other sports teams. Unfortunately as I was often out of the office I wasn't able to take part.
