As an Operations intern we got a broad range of exposure to the support functions within the Investment Bank. There were a wide range of opportunities to network and meet new peers whilst also learning a trade. Tasks ranges from reporting, trade confirmation and Project Management to Change and Business Management.
A great opportunity to meet people at all levels and learn a trade with a clear career focus.
If you were prepared to work hard and commit to the team then they would equally show you respect and guidance in order to make the internship both successful and rewarding.
With weekly 'lunch and learns' and various networking events, it was clear that there was a big opportunity to get advice and guidance from management individuals.
Most working days were from 9am to 6pm but the good atmosphere and the many approachable people around you meant the workload/length of the days was never really an issue.
I was given as much responsibility as can be expected of an intern.
The internship was a great experience and taught me to make the most of every opportunity available.
Everyone was hard-working but at the same time approachable and friendly.
There was a clear structure to the programme.
We had a whole week of the internship dedicated to training.
If successful on the internship there is an opportunity to get on the graduate scheme for the following year.
The other interns were very friendly and many raports were developed between one another.
London has and always will be an expensive area to live.
