Hello, I Am Jacob
April 2023 Ambassador of the Month
Tell us more about your experience
I decided to do an apprenticeship as it offered me a direct
route into the career in which I wanted to pursue and also incorporated all of
the learning into one programme so I didn't have to worry about leaving
university and finding a job.
If you are looking for an apprenticeship, make sure you conduct
lots of research! Find a firm that you believe will be the best fit for you and
learn lots about them in preparation for interviews.
The highlights of my apprenticeship so far have definitely
been networking with a number of different people within the firm and being
able to travel to different offices to talk about the apprenticeship and learn
from the more experienced apprentices. We have access to the wider
apprenticeship cohort within the firm with a number of apprentices being
stationed in our Manchester office. Our educational provider BPP also has a
virtual campus in which we can interact with people on our course and attend
both virtual and in person events to support this.
