    The date for applications opening for the JP Morgan Apprenticeship scheme is approaching already, so I thought I'd start a new discussion for it.

    Both the 'Financial Services Apprenticeship' and the 'Technology Degree Apprenticeship' applications open on the 2nd of October - so if anyone looking to apply has any questions or anyone who has completed the programme previously would like to share the information here that that would be great.

    I myself am keen to do the Financial Apprenticeship, and working my way into JP Morgan this way rather than the Uni route.

    Hi mate, only just sent my application off a few days ago. Took a while to sort out my predicted grades with my school.

    Also had to decide betweeen Bournemouth and London being based in Hertfordshire, went with Bournemouth in the end!

    I know I'm in a good position going into it as I did the Think ahead programme in the summer so I skip some of the process, and I know a bit about the apprenticeship programme itself

    Hi mate,

    congrats on getting through to the interview!

    how long did it take for them to get back to you with an interview after you originally applied? Also did you apply to the London office?

    It's just that I applied on the 2nd Oct and still have not heard anything back

    Hi,

    Thanks. And it took about 2 weeks. Yes I did apply to the London one.
    Maybe they are still reviewing your application.

    Yeah maybe you're right.

    From past experience those that hear back last usually don't make it through.

    Good luck in the rest of the process though!

    Just received an email this morning from them saying I'm through to the next stage which is the telephone interview. Sent off my application Thursday I believe.

    Got an email a couple of days ago about a telephone interview too. Is this a viable alternative for a front office job, or would uni route be better?
    Can't decide between this and going to a russell group university to break in to the industry.

    The apprenticeship isn't for a FO role. However I have spoken to people at the firm who said they do have 2 current apprentices in the front office. The best way to get into a FO role through an apprenticeship is to join the operations department, people have made the jump from operations to IB but it is very difficult.

    Good luck to everyone with their applications and telephone interviews.

    Im through to the Assessment Centre day on the 8th January in Bournemouth. Excited but not sure what to expect, so going to speak with the careers advisor at my sixth form to see what she knows about this sort of thing.
