1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I work within the OTM Product Owner Team - this is an application that internal users use to manage, allocate, and perform actions on tasks for their day-to-day jobs.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have developed understanding of many different aspects of the bank by making use of the talks that go on around the site. As well as learning and training within my role through the use of courses supplied which allows me to understand the agile approach my team use.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I thoroughly enjoy the apprenticeship as a whole, the Bournemouth schools programme are always there in a time of need, check up on how we are settling on a regular basis and will always make the time for us. The apprentices are very close which makes settling into the work environment easier.
4. How valued do you feel by J.P. Morgan?
The opportunity for recognition is wide within my role as I deal with internal colleagues all day every day to ensure they have an easy, manageable work flow.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
We had a two week induction period in preparation before starting our roles it inc. the do's and don'ts, the basics of the bank, team building and the flow of the programme across the 18 months. The materials given to us are very useful and clear to understand.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
Our training provider will stop and start within our lectures every time one of us do not understand, they provide their email address at the end of each session and always ensure a recording of the live lecture is up the following day to recap.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
The support from my mentor is great, she is always there when I'm stuck or if I need a reminder or general chat with any concerns I have.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
I currently live at home so do not pay as much as others may have to. My salary is very suitable for me, especially considering we get a qualification with it.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
There are always events going on that the programme encourage us to get involved in. We have already done many and still have more to come such as charity cycles, London trips to the bank, and competitive events.
