1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
My current role is a project management apprentice and I work within a project management office team.
I assist with the compliance and governance on the account I have been assigned to - Specifically, I managed the on-boarding & off-boarding process as my main responsibility.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have greatly developed many soft skills such as communication from being on a client facing account and attending training sessions like the 7 Habits.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I feel the programme very enjoyable - One of the things I like most about the programme is having the chance to work in such a diverse environment with many different people and cultures - Something I am rarely exposed to where I live.
4. How valued do you feel by Atos?
I do feel valued at times - However I am not sure if it is because I am naturally quiet unless spoken to or usually just keep to myself, but I do feel that I sometimes fall "under the radar" so to speak.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
Overall, it is very structured and everything was made clear from the start regarding what is expected of us and what we need to know.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I receive plenty of support from QA / my assessor - he is always available and easy to get hold of whenever I need something answered. All of the training workshops conducted by my assessor were enjoyable and informative.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
I receive plenty of support from my employer regarding the companies work - However I don't receive as much support regarding my coursework from QA.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
It has gotten better since I started - Currently I am on the National Living wage which has helped me greatly. The only large cost which I have is my travel as I am a long distance commuter, even now it costs over half of what I take home each month to pay for my season ticket.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
I try and get involved in as much as I can, but traveling for the number of hours that I do makes it difficult.
9a. Would you recommend Atos to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
Because Atos has given me plenty of amazing opportunities over the last 18 months, all of which have helped in my development - This is why I made the choice to do the long and expensive commute as I simply see it as the cost of opportunity... safe to say I'm getting my money's worth and then some with all of the development I've done.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Atos? *
Simply be honest when being interviewed, research the company beforehand so you can find where you can add the most value - Try to write down any skills of yours which you want to showcase during the who process of applying.
