1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


As part of Fujitsu I work as a configuration engineer for the PROJECTS team, we do volume build roll-outs and also asset/database all of what we build for the client.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


Databasing - I have learn't how to correctly label laptops/monitors/tablets and how to input them into the database to keep track.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I think the day-to-day work could be more varied, and there could be more time put aside to do college coursework as a week can go by without any being completed.

4. How valued do you feel by Fujitsu?


I feel valued by Fujitsu as they have invested in my education and made me part of a successful config team who listen to my input and trust my ability.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


I haven't seen the programme yet so I can't comment on what lies ahead, I have to just be told on a week-by-week basis which department/team I will be working with.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?


They visit the workplace every few weeks, but I feel they could visit on a more regular basis as some of the time is spent going over what happened on the previous visit and the classroom lessons a lot better for understanding the coursework.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?


I feel they give me enough support to complete the programme, however more time could be put aside to help with the coursework part of the programme which you can fall behind on quite easily.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?


I am happy with the salary I am on this year although I do spend a lot on travel and living expenses personally.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


Yes there are a lot of opportunities to visit the London headquarters for presentations or to schools to educate the younger generation on what apprenticeships are about.

9. Would you recommend Fujitsu to a friend?


9b. Why?

Because it is an opportunity to work for a big company with secure and stable job prospects, and you are working with great people.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Fujitsu?

Research the role and ask a lot of questions on what you will be doing on a day-to-day basis as there is a lot more manual handling involved in the role than I had anticipated.
