1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
As part of the HR Solutions Team, I am responsible for managing the workflow of employee lifecycle activities between the strategic HR Advisor teams and the HR administrator team, which is partially off-shored to the Nomura Shared Services Centre in India. The role requires interaction with HR colleagues and clients across the whole Company and at all levels.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
Yes I have. Obviously I am very early on in my apprenticeship (I only started in May.)But I already feel that I have improved interpersonal skills and my organisation.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I really enjoy the team I work with. The work is varied which makes the job interesting though stressful at times.
4. How valued do you feel by Nomura?
Feel very valued and do not feel that I am treated differently being just an apprentice.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
I cannot really answer this as only one month in and this is my first week actually studying.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
Again this is non applicable as only had one online seminar so far.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
So far a lot of support- though due to restructure in the company its been hard to find who deals with apprenticeships.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
My salary is okay. However I commute from Cambridge and thus my season ticket is over 5000 without tube or parking costs. This takes a significant chunk out of my salary despite having a season ticket loan
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
Everyone is very sociable- we go out for drinks occasionally. Whilst there is a gym which I would want to go to. It is not provided at a reduced rate. This means I cannot do it.
9a. Would you recommend Nomura to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
Supportive, Insightful and Caring
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Nomura? *
Be enthusiastic and throw yourself in at the deep end. It is hard at first but I am beginning to see the benefits.
