1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I currently work in GACH. This involves me working with clients to manage direct debits and standing orders. These clients are based largely in Europe. With these payments being set up , I also ensure that none of which are already existing and therefore could overlap and lead to payments being made without a clients desire.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have learnt many new skills such as touch typing and a better ability to take notes faster. These skills can be transferable to many other aspects of my life and are incredibly useful. I have also developed my existing skills on excel and branched in to the more complex areas such as pivot tables and macros.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I thoroughly enjoy the programme. It allows me to gain the experience that is invaluable as well as progress through my own accademics. The community spirit of the apprenticeship and the oppertunities both in and out of work have made this whole experience fantastic.
4. How valued do you feel by J.P. Morgan?
I feel extremly valued by JP Morgan. I feel as though I am valued for my contributions and as a regular employee. I find this highly empowering as well as a sense of pride that I work for such a reknown company.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
I think my programme is very well structured. With my split of working days and studying I find that the structure works well to ensure I get the most out of both aspects and progress through both. As well as this, I feel the programme is well structured to prepare me for my job after the programme has finished.
