The placement year really helped me to develop a range of skills, including team work, organisation, communication and presentation skills
During my placement year I was a financial risk analyst for Lloyds Banking Group located in Halifax. I was part of the capital team within the Mortgages Credit Risk division.
Aside from my job role I was given a lot of opportunities to get involved in a range of activities, including attending a group convention, shadowing various roles around the office and getting involved in fund-raising work with charities.
The placement year really helped me to develop a range of skills, including team work, organisation, communication and presentation skills. Over the year, I became much more independent.
My placement year confirmed my belief that this is a career path I am suited for and it has given me a great foundation to build a successful career.
