What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
Gaining knowledge and making relationships with colleagues from all aspects of the business by rotating through all departments. Vast opportunity to forge my own path in my career, freedom to get involved in many different roles and projects during my time on the scheme. Access to work alongside senior management and see clear career paths in which I could work towards this myself once I have settled into a role.
As this graduate programme is geographically rotational, moving business units each 6 months can be challenging as doing this can encroach into your personal life, feeling sometimes like there is no separation. Although on the flip side of this, I feel that rotating around different business units is really beneficial to me as a trainee, as each one works completely differently, so you get a diverse range of knowledge and can build relationships with many employees throughout the country.
