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

10/10

Our role was basically to shadow our buddy for the day to get a glimpse at what it is like to work in PwC. Each day we had a different buddy who worked in a different department and this gave us the opportunity to explore all areas of the business. We also worked on a group project throughout the week which was great fun!

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

10/10

I’ve definitely developed my teamwork skills and my communication skills have improved as well through the group activities and presentation that we did. It also gave me an opportunity to develop my self confidence and improved other employability skills too.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

Overall I loved the experience.
