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

10/10

The programme was one week long during the half term holidays on October. I was in the first year in which they introduced this work experience. At the start of the week we were given a big folder of what the week held. It was very nice and formal, each day they took us to the different departments including tax, acounting and private equity. On the last two days they gave us a case study to present to their head of departments. the most useful thing I found was that they gave us each a mentor, someone that works at the firm and we could stay in contact with them even after the week was over.
