A day in the life of a Undergraduate Finance Internship in the United Kingdom
Undergraduate Finance Internship at Severn Trent Water
What I do
I was a finance intern at Severn Trent Water's head office. Each week I revolved to a different department in the finance team to learn about what they do and for me to do my own project for them.
Skills I use and how I developed them
Communication: Developed by effectively using the company's IT
Teamwork: Each week I worked in a different team and I developed my team work by constantly adapting myself to each situation.
Problem Solving: Each team had a different project to be worked on. I developed this by never being afraid to ask questions.
What I like most
The experience of working in a top FTSE 100 company and the exposure that I received to the financial world
What I like least
Sometimes I felt that a week was not long enough to get properly involved in each team.
What surprised me most
The number of different teams and the communication between all of the different teams.
My advice to students considering work
Apply to as many places as you can, perfect your CV and keep your options open. Never be afraid to ask!
Make use of the university careers service whilst you are here!
I am happy to talk about applying for jobs, finance internships and the utilities industry.
