Hey All,

I am interested in applying for the JP Morgan Degree Apprenticeship to start in 2021 within the Canary Warf office. However, I wasn't too sure what kind of job this would lead me onto in the future.

The apprenticeship part of the programmes is not a front office role, however, on the website it does mention that once you have completed the degree apprenticeship, you may be offered a job within JP Morgan. Is this role a front office job or just a support job? Ideally, I am looking for a front office job upon completion of the DA.

Along side applying for this degree apprenticeship, I am also thinking of applying for a law degree at Russell group uni's. If I graduated from a Russell group uni, with either a 1st or 2:1, would I be better placed to get a front office role in an investment bank

Many Thanks

If you make it through the 4 years of the apprenticeship you're practically guaranteed a job. What this job is depends on business needs and what you end up specialising in.
In the degree apprenticeship you won't be stuck to just one role and will move around the business, trying out different parts. This will likely include front office work and you may decide you prefer some other area of the business then you have in mind now. I believe at 2 years in you get to choose to specialise in an area after trying out many different ones. Although when applying make sure you say you're in it to try out the different areas and that you not just in it for 1 specific area.

A degree apprenticeship gives you a degree as well as 4 years work experience. For companies that 4 years work experience will be far more valuable than a degree from a better rated university.

I applied to the IT one which is run alongside the finance. I know this as I met a bunch of people who were applying for the finance DA.
