1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I was a financial analyst working in the global corporate bank. Daily tasks included looking into the range of products J.P.Morgan offer to their clients and working in a group to complete a project which had to be presented to a group of employees who located in the corporate bank.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have learned how to network with professional individuals, something that I had not done before. I have learned how to draft a presentation in a engaging manor which keeps the audience focused. I have developed my time management and team working skills through completing the project and I have also developed my communication skills as I was speaking to various members of the bank.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoyed the programme very much; the amount I learnt was very effective and useful when pursuing my career in banking, the firm itself was a fantastic place to be and were very welcoming and helpful, the team I worked with were also great people and the residential experience was very enjoyable with all the external activities we underwent.
4. How valued do you feel by J.P. Morgan?
They made me feel as if I was a valued asset by the company as they tried to integrate me as much as possible by sharing a lot of information to me, some only exclusive to the firm and so it made me feel trusted and apart of the firm. They also made it clear that they'd be delighted to have some of us back working there in the future so that also made me feel that they valued what I and my peers had to offer them.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The programme was very well structure in that we were given introductory talks from the firm and insights into the different areas within the bank which meant that when we were allocated to our different lines of business in the second week, we knew a fair amount about everything which helped us with the projects and so on.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
My project leader was always on hand to help which was extremely useful as I could always go to him if I needed help or guidance with the project or just more information about a part of the bank. He was always willing to help and never once turned me away if I came for support.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
The HR team helped with any genuine queries about schedules and the programme as a whole.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
We were given £10-£15 a day for lunch and all other expense were catered for and this amount was more than enough to cover lunch on a daily basis so the money provided was of a good amount.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
We weren't told much about opportunities outside of work however I was told by some employees that they were given gym memberships and the company held a lot of external events for all the employees to get together with clients.
9. Would you recommend J.P. Morgan to a friend?
It was a great experience and J.P.Morgan itself is a massive organisation and anyone who is looking for a job in banking and finance in the future should consider J.P.Morgan as it has a large variety of jobs roles to offer with a ease of transferability and the culture and environment of the bank is second to none.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to J.P. Morgan?
Learn about the firm prior to applying, detail your application specifically to J.P.Morgan which means don't copy the applications used for other banks as it can be seen by the HR team and when being interviewed, try and showcase your true personality above all as this is valued by the recruitment team highly.
