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


I was on the Smart futures programme for yr12 students who had an interest in the professional industry. We were taught different soft skills each day for two weeks which involved acquiring these from some EY client firms also. We then could apply all we had learnt in the final week when we were sent to do some work experience.

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


Yes I have, especially presentation skills

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


Very much

4. How valued do you feel by EY?


A lot, I get emails every so often about alumni events and other opportunities to get involved in.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


Very organised and structures, we had an activity schedule to follow with exact times and dates which were stuck to.

As much as we required
