it took a while to get up to speed with the dept's work/reassure management that i was capable to contribute to the team.
my colleagues were great. very supportive. drip-fed me work to see how i did, then gave me more when i proved myself.
my colleagues were great. very supportive. drip-fed me work to see how i did, then gave me more when i proved myself. one of my colleagues was very supportive, putting me forward to carry out discrete pieces of work etc.
at points i think everyone gets bored. i took the chance to attend as many training courses and presentations to learn more about the business.
the fsa is keen for employees to take ownership of their own, discuss at length (collaborate), and resolve into a good piece of work.
hard to say. having a legal background did help understand the context of the work. I would have preferred more opportunities to use my legal training but it takes time to understand cases/the firm/the organisation, so it understandable why I was not used so much.
social led by a couple of individuals - but many joined in.
well organised generally with exemption of my annual leave been incorrectly organised intially - error resolved though.
good explanation of the business (talks from differing dept)
