Posted: 16th of October 2013 by Craig
Four former and current apprentices from across the Financial Services sector talk about how an Apprenticeship has benefited them.

The four stars, who work for Wolverhampton City Credit Union and in different roles at nationwide banks Barclays, HSBC and Lloyds Banking Group also talk about the breadth of skills they developed during their Apprenticeship and the importance of the sector to the economy.

The stars are:
• Jazzmynne Dixon (22) who has completed an Intermediate Apprenticeship in Customer Service with Wolverhampton City Credit Union
• Gurpreet Singh (27), who has completed an Advanced Apprenticeship in Retail Banking Conduct of Business with HSBC and is now a Premier Relationship Manager with the bank
• Sam Lodge (20), who is currently doing an Advanced Apprenticeship in Providing Financial Services with Lloyds Banking Group
• Thomas Harrison, (19), who is currently doing an Intermediate Apprenticeship in Providing Financial Services with Barclays

Employers, led by the Financial Skills Partnership, the Sector Skills Council for the financial sector, are being encouraged to promote the film across the sector and to young people. The film will also be used by the National Apprenticeship Service in resource packs for schools and at careers events up and down the country.
