Working in a team to deliver a project over a ten week period, based in one of the divisions within UK IT or Group IT and Commercial.
Meeting people, learning and researching, and creating a technological tool for use by the team in the future.
Projects are offered by several departments and the interns are allowed to choose which one they would like to do on the second day.
Fantastic experience, really good fun. A steep learning curve which provided challenge and engagement.
Very valued, really felt part of the team and everyone was incredibly welcoming and supportive, and took a genuine interest in my experience
The support was fantastic, both from our designated stream heads and from my individual placement manager and head of department.
Good balance between project work and intern development activities such as presentations, insights and workshops.
Responsible for delivery of a project, with sufficient support from my manager and team. Was given responsibility to manage time, meet with external contacts and structure my project.
Fantastic development, with lots of opportunities for expanding skillset, with workshops, presentation skills and company-specific knowlegde.
Varies from department to department, but my office was sociable but with a hardworking attitude - a good balance.
Well organised with a great balance between project and development, and the ability to shape my experience built in.
Lots of investment, from getting to spend time with senior leaders, to workshops and courses aimed at learning and developing skills.

Clear talent pathways, and the internship is definitely a step straight into the graduate scheme - impress and there is likely to be a job offer.
The interns met up daily for lunch, and organised social events for ourselves. The current graduates also put on some events for us in the first couple of weeks to get to know each other and the area.
Property rental was organised and paid for by the company, which was immensely valuable. Based in the centre of Edinburgh, so reasonably expensive to go out (although much cheaper than London!)
Edinburgh is fantastic, so much to see and do!
Edinburgh fringe festival! Must see!
