The Role

Role Description

I opted to work within Risk Assurance Services (RAS) which is all about auditing the systems of the organisation, and ensuring that the methods they use within the organisation are sufficient.

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

A great, friendly company to work for. Given responsibility from the start.

9/10

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

Especially when working in smaller teams you are needed and the work you are given is vital. Less so in a larger group though, where more senior staff are given the jobs.

8/10

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

Helped through the entire process, and everyone in the office is willing to help.

7/10

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Some days there would be little to do, and other days strict deadlines would cause stress.

3/10

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

i was lucky in that I worked within a very small team (2) for a lot of the process, so I was doing the equivilant work of senior staff.

10/10

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

I don't think the skills will help me during my final year of uni, but they offered me a full time job for when I graduate, so they will help me then.
