1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
My day in JP Morgan varied,the first week we were intorduced to all tbr different aspects of banking such as IS, IB and TS;this was done through teach-in sessions which were very useful. The second week we were mostly in our line of business, mine was investor services. We had to develop a project which was to promote Jp Morgan to potential clients. We also got to sot in in many phonecalls, visited Jp Morgans private bank and the metal exchange.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

I honestly can say i loved every second of it and would not hesitate for a secind to return. As this was my first time in london i really did enjoy the atmosphere, people and experience as a whole.
4. How valued do you feel by J.P. Morgan?

My mentor [This section of the comment has been removed by a member of the RateMyApprenticeship Team because it did not meet our site terms and conditions] made me feel really valued as she included me in everything and let me sit in on her meetings. Additionally the whole team on IS made me feel so welcomed as they always smiled, said hello and asked if i was getting on ok.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
I went on the aspiring professionals programme, in which i came from Northern Ireland to attend.
