Trying to put my experience at BNZ into two or three sentences is really quite challenging, as there is so much that I loved and learned. Going into the experience, I had very limited knowledge about the banking sector; however, my two days there covered banking and its diverse sectors quite well. I cannot recommend this work-placement enough. The people I met and built relationships with along the way, and the amount I learned about banking and BNZ alike are both invaluable experiences, and one I encourage every woman to pursue.
