4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Mazars treat placement students as 1st year graduates meaning I was always busy and was given they same opportunities as they were. E.g. starting the ACA qualification.
I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to work in both Wales and Scotland as well.

6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

Being treated as a graduate helped me develop the skills to work in any office and client facing job.
Key skills being:
Professionalism
Communication (Oral and written)
Technical knowledge (in accounting and audit)

The biggest factor I believe that will help me in my final year is gaining a work ethic. Being able to work 7.5hrs (Minimum) 5 days a week hopefully means I can take a similar approach to my university for my final year.
