1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I've recently passed an assessment centre to confirm that I am working at a Project Co-Ordinator level. My day-to-day role involves resource management, compiling plans, monitoring risks and issues and document management/governance
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
Fujitsu offer a large number of internal courses. I have been able to attend a lot of Project Management specific courses and have even been able to achieve my PRINCE2 Practitioner.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
Overall I think Fujitsu is a fantastic place to learn and develop any skill set ready to prepare you for the future. They recognise talent and push us along.
4. How valued do you feel by Fujitsu?
Fujitsu's STARs awards offer an incentive to keep pushing yourself. Any one can nominate an employee for a STARs award and high awards even come with a cash bonus. I think this is a great way to help people feel appreciated for their work.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The structure of the apprenticeship varies between departments. Overall I think there are many opportunities to learn in my department but little opportunities to move around and experience different aspects of the business.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
My training provider was new to the Business Admin qualification so unfortunately wasn't familiar with a lot of the processes we had to write about. Despite this, she was incredibly helpful and always tried to find us other resources to turn to when we got stuck.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
My employer was always understanding that sometimes I needed support to get through my work as well as my coursework. I have also recently been assigned a mentor to help me develop myself and discuss what avenues are open to me
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
For an apprentice, we are very well paid. We receive the same bonus package and incentive schemes as the other employees in our department as well.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
As I've entered my second year I've been encouraged to start focusing more on my work than extra activities. Despite this, I have still been invited to many events including meeting our Japanese president-elect in May.
9. Would you recommend Fujitsu to a friend?
For young people this is an excellent place to work as the opportunities for development are fantastic. You can also learn a lot of different methods of working through the internal training courses. These include free online courses we can choose to do whenever.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Fujitsu?
Fujitsu is a good place to work IF you are willing to grab opportunities. As there are a lot of employees here, you need to do whatever you can to stand out from the crowd. If you take on new challenges and try to keep learning as you go this is a great opportunity.
