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

It would be good if Investment Management had a graduate scheme, because throughout the placement I was unsure whether there would be a job for me or not, and it wasn't made clear.

Social

Everyone got on really well, and BDO organised a few events. There are also drinks every month for everyone in Investment Management, which we were invited to and therefore got on well with everyone.
