1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I'm part of the HR dept. at my work place- a team called Employee Enablement. The daily tasks/interactions are usually between myself and the other employees helping them to addrerss their queries and issues but, it can also be liaising with our vendors to have employee issues fixed e.g private benefits issues.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I've learnt more about organisation and I think I've become more mature.
I've also become better at communicating.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
The culture in the company is very open although it can sometimes be quite demanding, you will very often find that people here are very pushy.
Overall the pace is very quick and high-stress.
4. How valued do you feel by Bloomberg LLP?
I've received praise and constructive criticism from my manager which has been very helpful, however, there are times where managers higher up are very unhelpful when you try to enforce regulations or policies in place of 'white glove' service, which can be quite demoralising.
Overall, there is recognition from employees/colleagues when you've done things well.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
Some parts, such as the interview process were less organised than when we actually starting working at the company
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I feel I received a lot of support from the provider, the information that was provided was very helpful and always well explained. My tutor was always on hand to help out with any questions that I had about my coursework.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
There were times when I received more support than others. They were very helpful and instructive and were on hand when I had queries
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
The salary was very helpful in meeting the costs that I had throughout the time of study
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
There were quite a few volunteer activities and there were also shadowing opportunities with other depts. I also enjoyed the summer party that we had, which was a good opportunity to network with other employees.
