    • For the past 5 months, I have been acting project manager for the Brexit Team working for the Lloyd’s Brussels subsidiary.  The objective of my team is to make Lloyd’s Brussels both systematically and financially independent, so it can take over our European business when we leave the European Union.

    • Soon I will be rotating to my second placement where I will join an underwriting team for Credit & Political Risk.
    • During the Christmas period I also drove a Christmas Box appeal to collect toys for children living in poverty in Africa and Asia, and created 37 boxes full of toys and £120
  • How have you found your apprenticeship?

    • I have been given a lot of responsibilities
    • I have made so many new contacts and built up great relationships
