Why did you choose to do an apprenticeship at AJ Bell?
I chose an apprenticeship because I wasn’t excited at the prospect of going to university like all my other friends so thought I would try an apprenticeship instead. I thought that I would be bored going to uni and I love being busy and being hands on.
What has been the highlight of your apprenticeship so far?
My highlight has been meeting all of the senior management team including Andy Bell and listening to their stories and how they got to where they are today.
For what reasons would you recommend a career / apprenticeship with AJ Bell?
I would recommend AJ Bell because everyone is so inviting and friendly. A lot of our managers started out as administrators and everyone wants to see you progress and develop your career, especially as apprentices.
What tips would you give to anyone applying for an AJ Bell apprenticeship
Be confident and approachable on the assessment days. Show why you want to do an apprenticeship and why it is the best option for you. Research the business before you apply and especially before the assessment days.
