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

8/10

I'm an associate in assurance. I have to perform a wide range of tasks from data testing to analysis. Every day I work in a team with lots of communication. On top of this I often have a lot of contact with the client as a lot of the work is performed on client site. Responsibilities can include anything from planning and organization to execution and conclusion as well as weeks away for learning opportunities.

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

10/10

Yes, there is consistent training. This is made up of internal meeting, online learning and of course during the 5 year duration we are also studying to achieve a CA degree. Finally, being in a work environment day in and out provides a huge wealth of knowledge and experience.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

9/10

Work can sometimes feel tedious however at other times its very challenging. I love that i get to work in new teams and be exposed to new clients frequently and how everyone is always nice, everyone wants everyone else to do well here. Overall i enjoy it.
