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


During the three weeks you get an overview of how a business environment operates. This included meeting a client at lunch. In the final week we were given the opportunity to work in one of the service lines.

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


Skills such as confidence can grow through presentations and being able to voice opinions within a team.

The people we met at EY wanted to hear our views on how to make the programme better and our future plans for after college.
