Share

Local student Ben Allen gained vital experience with PwC through the Discover Digital Summer Internship scheme. Here we find out more about his placement.

Callum McCutcheon, Senior Associate at PwC gave the following feedback on the Discover Digital Summer Internship and praised the work of their intern Ben Allen.

"Working closely with us, Ben has become a valued member of our team during his five week internship here at PwC. He has really embraced the opportunity from start to finish, getting involved in discussing, challenging, designing and developing software projects from day one. Since joining us, Ben has had a great attitude, as well as bringing an excellent set of skills to the table, having studied Electrical Engineering. Enthusiastic from the outset, he has collaborated very well with us on a range of projects, such as optimising SQL databases, designing Qlikview reports and creating Visual Basic tools. 

 A highlight for us was Ben's strength in spearheading his own projects. He sat down with key people from all levels across the business, evaluated their technical problems and developed his own solutions from scratch. We tested these solutions afterwards with very successful outcomes and are grateful to Ben that our people will benefit greatly as a result. 

Ben showed a great interest in learning about some of the upcoming developments in the FinTech sector, such as Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies and Artificial Intelligence. He also really enjoyed the opportunity to discuss some of PwC's upcoming projects in those spaces with our leading Partner in this area of the business, Nick Vermeulen. 

Thanks for all your hard work and energy Ben!"
