What was the process of applying for the vac scheme?

I filled out an online Application, but there was no interview.

How long did the vac scheme last?

I did mine in Easter and it lasted 2 weeks.

What sort of hours were you working?

9 - 5.30.

How many other interns were there?

If I remember correctly there were 15 interns in total.

What sort of things were you doing?

I sat in the Private Equity team and helped out with research, due diligence and anything that the partners or associates would pass down. I was also involved in paginating a number of documents.

Was there an evaluation after?

I didn’t receive one.

What was the culture of the organisation?

Work hard play hard. I really enjoyed meeting the people who worked there and still keep in contact with a number of the interns.

Were you paid?

Yes, but I would prefer not to say how much.

Were there any perks?

There were a couple of in-house drinks organised after work for the interns in order for us to get to know each other better and ask people in the firm questions.
