The Role

Role Description

Based for seven weeks in a commercial centre to learn about commercial banking and the business processes.

The role you wish to do within the centre is entirely up to the business needs and what interestes you. For example I wanted to work with the credit and risk side of the business so a lot of my role involved me writing and reading credit applications for businesses and meeting clients. Also Foreign Exchange intrested me so I spent time with the global markets division in Canary Wharf to learn about how the FX work we do in there centre advances.

I was also organising charity events.
