I enjoy my job because right from the start I have been given a lot of responsibilities that really make me feel like I add value to the team and the business. I’ve learnt so much from the people around me in such a short space of time, I never expected a “trainee” role to be so action packed!
I think the most challenging thing about my job is that I’ve been put into a brand new team that has just been created. This means that there are certain knowledge gaps and sometimes it’s difficult to find the right person to help me.
I left school with A Levels looking to break into the finance industry, after being unsuccessful in a number of applications I settled for working in an administrative role within a psychometric testing company. I decided I would stay there for 2 years to pad out my CV and then re-apply for the roles I previously was not accepted into. 2 years later I’ve achieved my goal and am working for a well respected FTSE 100 company within the finance industry.
I’m really happy with how my career has started off. I feel the knowledge I’ve accumulated and the foundations I have built will aid me to push into whatever career path I choose to follow. I’m currently of the opinion I want work in sales but at the moment I’m happy to see what Schroders has got planned for me.
Fulfilling, enjoyable & a good opportunity to meet likeminded people.
