The advice I would give is firstly talk to someone you may know that is already in the trade and ask them any questions that you may have or ask them about some of there first hand experiences.

Another good piece of advice would be to go onto YouTube and search some basic electrics, keep in mind that these are the kind of things that you will face when you go to the college phases of your apprenticeship . There are books and e-books that can be purchased to get an understanding.

Rob, Quantitative Analyst Services

Rob joined us here in EY in September 2014. Originally he started in FS Advisory Performance Improvement but moved to the Risk, and more specifically the Quantitative Analyst Services (QAS) team, in January this year. He moved because it aligns more with his background and interests and because it’s a challenging field with the big changes going on in banks at the moment due to regulatory changes. Also the teams are rapidly growing across EMEIA.
