Columbia Threadneedle Investments
Client Reporting Trainee
Why do you enjoy your job?
My 12 months will entail time spent in three different
departments: client reporting, RFP (Request for Proposal) and client services.
This will allow me a much wider perspective of the company and as a school
leaver it is all new information. I thoroughly enjoy the chance to learn constantly
as I am surrounded by employees with a wealth of knowledge and experience about
this industry, and I learn something new every day.
What is the most challenging thing about your job?
Jargon is always initially a challenge when you enter a new industry.
So during the first few weeks it was a job alone just to learn and understand
all of the different things that were being talked about.
How did you get into your job?
I applied to Columbia Threadneedle Investments through the Investment20/20
scheme as a school leaver. I wanted to explore avenues other than just
university, so registered with the Investment20/20 email subscription to find
out about opportunities or events that might interest me. I attended an open
morning for Columbia Threadneedle Investments and was interested, so applied.
How would you sum up your Investment20/20 experience?
Invaluable experience and knowledge gained in the financial industry.
