1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


As a Business Insight Week student I shadowed auditors and was lucky enough to go to a Client site to carry out some auditing work with my buddy.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


I learnt how to engage with clients and also what auditing involves on a day-to-day basis.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I really enjoyed the programme because everyone I met was extremely approachable and they were all keen to help me progress. I enjoyed it a lot as it was not at all boring and there were so may things to learn.

4. How valued do you feel by PwC?


I feel very valued by PwC as everyone treated me with the same respect even though I was just a student who had no knowledge of auditing before. I was trusted to audit some bank reconciliations which helped boost my confidence.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


The programme was very well structured and the induction day was well planned with several booklets prepared to help us if we were unsure of anything throughout our week at PwC. The student recruitment team were very open and friendly and offered their support via email if needed.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?


My training advisor was very friendly and approachable and was always extremely helpful when explaining difficult principles I didn't understand the first time. He made sure I understood everything before he moved on and didn't make me feel weak at any point.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?


I received a lot of support from PwC as everyone was very friendly at reception.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?


The added bonus of paid work experience was definitely a substantial benefit and was very generous considering most work experiences are unpaid.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


We went out for lunch twice in one week and it was a great chance to meet with my Buddy's friends and network with them.
