"I receive genuine responsibility and have a lot of variety in what I do (meetings, excel, presentations, writing, discussion)."
Graduate, London
"Always varied and interesting. The learning curve is very steep, given my junior position, and this suits me well."
Graduate, London
"Being in a graduate role, one would expect a fair amount of administrative duties to fall my way. This has occurred to some extent. While at times trivial, this work is genuinely important for the teams I have worked in as well as for my own personal development. Aside from this, I have been fortunate to work on several larger projects. The implementation of the new CSC (control self-certification) standards has been particularly important."
Graduate, London
"I have had two roles within M&G and they have both been more involved around me designing my own work. I've also had some tasks from my manager that keep me busy. All work is given to me based on my goals and interests."
Graduate, London
"Tasks range between each department but generally I tend to get involved in different projects across the business that interest me."
Graduate, London
"In general I am given very interesting work and graduates are given significant responsibility at an early stage."
Graduate, London
"Work varies a lot. If you show skills, you're put at the lead of major projects from day one."

"I've been assigned a personal project and had the ability to rotate and experience different teams and work."

"The rotation system means your day-to-day responsibilities vary depending upon the team which you are currently in."
Graduate, London
"I am responsible for writing credit papers for companies with new issues or infrastructure-based investments; helping out the analysts with any models that need updating or notes written. There is often a lot of time with little to do."
Graduate, London
"I am an equity analyst which means I analyse companies and investment opportunities, meet investor relations and management from companies."
Graduate, London
"As a group wide function, I am part of a global audit team. The audits I work on vary each quarter, from business specific audits to regulatory change. Internal Audit allows me to work with a range of stakeholders from across the business and understand different parts of the business. In addition I am continuously working on MI to be used for committee purposes and meetings. Day-to-day responsibilities vary according to business needs and audit requirements - the challenge is what makes my role interesting."
Graduate, London
"My role as a Business Analyst has developed at such a fast pace, I am now responsible for a number of high-profile project deliverables. Every day is challenging and the number of differing areas of work available has really surprised me."
Graduate, London
"As a graduate your start with an in-depth training programme and once on the job you are given real responsibility from day one. No two days are the same in Business Change with a great variety in work and duties changing on a day-to-day basis."
Graduate, London
"My work is highly varied. Combination of client facing investor relations type work and deal based analytical work."
Entry level, London
"My rotations have been incredibly interesting, involved and varied. You can typically expect a core role with multiple ad hoc projects as you develop and progress throughout each rotation."
Graduate, London
