1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
My role as a higher level apprentice project manager, includes a huge variety of varying tasks, such as client engagement as well as helping support the project managers with their day to day tasks. my role is key in ensuring that milestones and deadlines are met as well as ensuring stakeholder satisfaction.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have developed many skills since starting my apprenticeship including APM introductory certificate alongside my APM project management apprentice qualifications. I have also radically improved my skills in things such as Microsoft excel, PowerPoint, project, Visio and word.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoy my program hugely, with the travel commitments I have to make enjoying my job is paramount to success. the team I am in also a huge factor to ensuring I enjoy my role as well as all of the other colleagues I have met whilst working for Atos
4. How valued do you feel by Atos?
Atos is a huge company when I started I was doubtful as to how much impact I would make and whether or not I would be a valued member of the team. soon after settling into my role it became apparent that I was a valued member, being given more and more tasks with various levels of responsibility which helped me to feel as if I was important within my role
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The program I am on is structured in a way that the apprentices work on more than one account throughout their scheme which means they are shown more than one way of working through different types of projects and their lifecycles. this works well as it helps apprentices decide where they would like to go within the project world.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I feel as if the support provided by QA training could be a lot stronger, we can go weeks and weeks without hearing from our assessors, luckily atos is a strong enough company that their are people within the business that are able to help us if and when we need it
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
I cannot fault the support provided by Atos, with a supportive line and assignment manager we are able to always have someone around who can offer advice. as apprentices we are also given buddies that we can talk to when we need to talk to someone and then we are the buddies for apprentices to come to help continue a cycle of supportive team memebers
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
if I didn't have large and long travel commitments the salary would be able to comfortable cover my costs.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
yes we have different voluntary initiatives as well as social events. it is the responsibility of the apprentices to help to plan the end of program awards which is a celebratory event that all apprentices are invited to.
9a. Would you recommend Atos to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
it is a great company to work for with a competitive salary and many different opportunities which range from meeting new people to be able to gain quality professional qualifications.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Atos? *
one piece of advice I would give to those applying to Atos is that if they are successful and invited to an assessment centre that they need to be themselves. ensure that they are taking part in the group activities but also not being overbearing or rude or other applicants but equally they need to ensure that they are being heard and listened to.
