When did you develop an interest in the industry?

"I was very conflicted on what I wanted to do whether it be university or an apprenticeship, let alone the sector I wanted to work in. It was after my experience with Springpod I figured out I had an interest in business and finance."

Risk and Control Apprentice, Julius Baer

"I first developed an interest in Business while studying it from year 9 at GCSE. We had a class trip to the Accenture Headquarters, and we had talks from various different people and I loved it. I then took Business for my A levels and loved learning about it but was so eager to put all my knowledge into practice."

Business Degree Apprentice, LLoyd's

How was your experience of Springpod?

"I struggled to find in person work experience and Springpod ensured I didn’t miss out on any opportunities. It was easy to use and very interactive with activities and tasks that kept you engaged."

Risk and Control Apprentice, Julius Baer

"The Springpod work experience also provided me with an opportunity to network. The webinars led by professionals in the industry allowed me to get in contact and ask further questions."

Solicitor Apprentice, Kesar & Co Solicitors

Did Springpod affect your career direction?

"It affected my career massively as without I’m not sure I would’ve been able to secure the role I’m currently in as Springpod built the foundations I used to build my CV."

Corporate and Commercial Banking Degree Apprentice, Santander UK

"It was an experience that I included in all my applications and helped me to show employers that I had gained skills such as communication and research."

Solicitor Apprentice, Stephenson Harwood

"I was unsure whether I would like to pursue the barrister route or to become a solicitor, Springpod helped in confirming my desire to be a solicitor."
