I work in the cashiers department at JLL in canary wharf, this means that on a daily basis i am required to post cash to different tenancies . I also recieve cheques on a daily basis which means i have to process then which includes posting them in a slightly different way and banking them on the computer. I also then contine to post cash as i have 3 different bank accounts in which i post casdh from.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have learnt a considerable number of skills at JLL and gained alot of confidence by having to communicate frequently with other members of the team. I have learnt the processes undertaken by a cashier on a daily basis. I have learnt alot more about the property sector than i did before i joined JLL asset management as i was very unfamiliar with the industry before my programme.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I really enjoy working within the cashiers team at JLL as they do alot of accounting based work which includes transferring high amounts of client money and handling these large sums of money on a daily basis.
4. How valued do you feel by JLL?
I feel like after 6 months at JLL i have become a valued member of the team and get on well with everyone in general. I also feel like I fit in well and am more than happy to work here with so many people i get on with.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
My programme is very well structured as i am required to go to college every fortnight and am given time to study at work if need be. I also have a good relationship with my manager who meets with me regularly to discuss my progress and ask me if there is anything she can help me with. I also have meetings every few months to meet up with the other apprentices to see how they are getting on and discuss matters regarding the scheme in general.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I recieve a high level of support from my training provider as they are fully behind my progression and support my learning. I never feel like i have no one to turn to if i am ever in need of support. There is many different ways in which i can seek help, for example the city of London offer an advice service in which allows the apprentices to talk to someone if they are feeling overwhelmed.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
I recieve high amouts of support from my employer as they are always able to offer me assistance and advice with any problems i may have. My manager is the first person i would turn to if i had an issue at work as she is very supportive of my course, this allows me to be comfortable at work and know i can turn to someone if I have a problem.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
My salary meets my costs fine as in my contract i recieve expenses for travel which means it doesn't cost me any money to travel to work. I also find that i am able to make my wage last well throughout the month and am able to save money aswell.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
There are plenty of opportunities outside of work as JLL run many different activities which allow you to meet different types of people and partake in all sorts of activities. Our team tend to go out fairly often and i also meet with the other apprentices from time to time. During summer we also do a days work for a local charity which gets us out of the office for a day.

9b. Why? *
I feel that JLL is a very large company that will give people alot of potential when it comes to a carear in asset management as they are fast growing and have a very friendly work environment that would make anyone new to the industry feel welcome.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to JLL? *
I would just say to be yourself as if you show them theat you are confident and you are easy to talk to you will get on alot more and will find that you get on with then other employees more.
