During the first few weeks of the programme, trainees were invited to a number of training and introductory sessions including a lunch with the senior management of the company. I found this very inspiring, giving me a better insight of the culture and heritage of Jupiter. Over the year I have had the opportunity to work on a various projects and tasks with different people across the department such as preparing business reports for clients, managing consultant databases, auditing information on external performance systems and taking part in the expansion of Jupiter’s advertising campaign.
Jupiter’s active approach goes beyond the investment concept and reaches to the spirit and mind-set of its employees. I really enjoy the fact that Jupiter maintains its proactive environment by engaging employees in various social and fund rising activities – Jupiter is a company which recognizes people’s potential and ideas.
My enthusiasm for joining Jupiter was driven by the company’s pioneering approach to maintaining a proactive business environment via its award-winning excellence in delivering a wide range of investment products and services. I was eager to begin my career in a company with an established, leading position and reputation, which cultivates and encourages talented people.
I have always wanted to pursue a career within the financial services industry and I feel lucky to have started my professional development as a trainee at Jupiter. As a freshly graduated student I was not sure which direction to take, but after joining Jupiter I realised that the buy-side of the industry might offer truly stimulating and challenging environment in which to work.
