Independent research. Aligning research to internal portfolio and occasionally to customer work. 20% off the job training as a part of the apprenticeship program.

Pluralsight courses. Internal training surrounding Agile. Expensed trips to conferences. I've learnt a multitude of things surrounding Data Science and programming that I did not know prior to this.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

I thoroughly enjoy my work and the people I work with. However it was a big adjustment to a large company whereby you are constantly working, or communicating, with others who are geographically spread, even before lock-down. overall I enjoy my job

10/10

Very well organised. We are given vast induction materials and there is a multitude of events that occur throughout the duration that keep us all engaged. I have great support from the graduate/apprenticeship community, internal networks (LGBT), various levels of management and everyone within my department is very approachable.

5. How much support do you receive from your employer?

I have many layers and outlets of support that I have utilised. This comes in the form of supporting my personal development, as well as my academic/technical development. There is always someone available to help.

WhiteHat are superb at getting back to me should i have any questions. They provide various platforms to get information to us, from dedicated Slack channels, to virtual conferences, their own UK community and regular 1:1 coaching sessions.

7. How well do you feel that your qualification (through your training provider) helps you to perform better in your role?

Having only started my course 1 month ago, I have only managed to have one 1:1 coaching session. However my coach is very keen on encouraging me to apply my learning to my role, and has help tailor objectives around this to ensure that I am getting the best possible outcome from the experience.

8. Are there extra-curricular activities to get involved in at your work? (For example, any social activities, sports teams, or even professional networking events.)

Fujitsu have vast range of networks. The networks I am involved with are; the Pride network (where I am encouraged to contribute as much as possible, and attend regular events to share experiences and network with others), the Junior Talent Network (this is the graduate and apprentice community where I have made local, national and global friends who i am able to share my experiences with). WhiteHat also provide regular coffee sessions, webinars and events. When not working I love to run, socialise and take day trips, a lot of the time with people I have met through work.
