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

9/10

During my three weeks time as a Smart Futures Intern at EY, my days were very varied. During the first two weeks, I interacted with various internal members of the team to improve key skills that are vital in the workplace e.g. presentation skills. Then, for the last week, I was based at a client site, where I participated in a range of tasks, mostly they were writing reports that would eventually be published, so a lot of responsibility was handed over to me!

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

8/10

My Public Speaking skills were improved as we did presentations almost everyday as well as my team work skills

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

9/10

I was handed a lot of responsibility which I enjoyed, so I never got bored. The team I worked with were all nice people and the company itself is quite ethical which is important when choosing an employer.
