    To work there is actually great. At the moment I'm working on a project in monetary analysis, and will be joined by a girl as i have been told.
    There are good places to eat at lunch and the bank is relatively easy to traverse around.
    The worst part is the travel there and back on the current weather. The tube stinks and i sweat so much my cloths stick to me.

    Sounds great. So is there no Bank canteen? Are you expected to eat out for lunch?
    Also, what is the dress code like? I assume most men are in suits, so the same would go for us interns then...?

    I always wear a suit just because I enjoy wearing suits. However in the current weather most men are coming in without the blazer which is absolutely fine. There is a main canteen I think on the 5th floor(never had to use it), and there is a coffee and snacks canteen on first floor.Look forward to seeing you guys.

    Hello, could anyone who did this last year answer a few questions?
    How long is the placement?
    Is the placement as well paid as the First Year internship (£70 per day)?
    Lastly, are there any explicit follow on opportunities from the internship?

    Thanks in advance if anyone can answer these

    Again anyone who attended the course last year, your feedback would be awesome.
    Like how was sorting out accommodation and your overall experience there?

    Well im just assuming, hopefully it is only a couple of weeks. Yeh it is paid but it wont be much
    when was the apllication period for the alevel internship programme? The alevel programme is completely taken down from their website, was wondering when did you guys all apply?

    Being a current year 12 student, is it too late, or do the 2017 applications open later?

    Sent them an email and they said
    'Thank you for your email. I’m afraid we will not be recruiting for the A Level internship directly next year. Many Thanks, Jess'

    Is anyone aware of any other organisations offering a similar summer work experience. (Economics not financial institutions like J.P Morgan)

    No you have to arrange yourself basically by emailing and hope you get lucky or if you have contacts lol. And since it's so hard to get economics ones I doubt anyone will post here

    He said Newport, South Wales. It's not an internship, it's work experience, and for a week (I emailed them to ask, but you can't arrange it privately anymore, you need to get your school to contact them with a form which they give to you).
