This review was submitted over 4 years ago, so some of the information it contains may no longer be relevant.
It was a well structured, challenging and highly educational program with lots of networking opportunities and interns were encouraged to take on responsibility early on.
The team I was working with were friendly, supportive and also good fun. They were willing to teach me a lot and the work I did over the summer was appreciated and implemented.
The HR team were approachable and helpful, and very good at answering any questions along the application process and also during the internship.
I was never bored!
I took responsibility for two projects, and these were used by my team once completed. I also worked with other members of my team on all lines of business, which was fascinating and exciting.
The internship really helped my practice time management skills and university life, in comparison to the internship, has a lot more free time which I appreciate, although also look forward to the world of work now and feel better prepared for it.
People were always working on something, and were committed to their jobs.
Very well structured, and the other interns were really nice too!
Training at the beginning and throughout, and it is a major component of the graduate scheme.
Staff Sales/Staff Shop
Mobility within the firm is possible too.
It was great, both among the intern class and within the team that I was placed with for the summer.
It was Central London, so it was expensive - although this was expected too.
Centre of the City, so great during the week and especially Thursday and Friday nights.
Where time permitted.
