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

9/10

I work in IT Security, this involves investigating computers and networks to be able to identify issues and, where possible, reducing unnecessary risks. I work within a small team in the UK which collaborates with a larger team in India.

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

7/10

I have worked hard to achieve a level of professionalism and understanding in the area that I work in. I strive to find out more and become an expert in the field. I have been on training courses, achieved certifications and have big plans for the future.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

9/10

I like working at Fidelity since the working environment is very good. I am trusted to get on with work and I question something if I am ever unsure. I feel my colleagues trust me just like anyone else within the team.

4. How valued do you feel by Fidelity International?

8/10

I feel that my level of professionalism is very important to the team and is something that I pride myself on. I have seen that the team have struggled to find the right candidates elsewhere and so I believe I am important.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

4/10

Within the first year I was provided with training opportunities and was provided with contacts if I have any problems. I feel that this has died down since the beginning

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

8/10

In the first year whilst completing my qualifications I worked very well with the training provided. I passed the relevant qualifications and had no issues so it was great to have that support.

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

9/10

I have had compassionate leave whilst I have been here, have worked from home at times and been ill on some days. I feel that my employer is generally very accepting whenever there are problems.

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

8/10

If I travel to a different office to the one accepted in my contract then my travel costs will be covered. My salary is good for an apprenticeship role although I can see that I am in an area where the standard permanent roles have much higher salaries.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

I have had social events with other apprentices, gone to corporate events with peers in my sector and have met other apprentices from other companies.
