As my internship draws to a close, I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to work at RSA, especially with the Social Impact team who have made my experience really enjoyable. The experience and connections that I have gained from it has meant that I have been fortunate enough to secure a permanent role within RSA as an Assistant Underwriter in the Casualty team. The most important lesson that many have told me at RSA is to bring your whole self to work. We are all unique in our own ways and there are many people within RSA who are keen to support you as you start your career.
