“The whole experience of living and working in London was amazing. I learned about the different sectors in the Bank and the range of professionals working there. Networking meetings allowed me to meet senior personnel, helped build my contacts and meet people from all over the country. The programme really developed my confidence and presentation skills and I cannot recommend the experience highly enough.’’
