I am delighted to be able to say that I have passed the UK Financial Regulation unit of the CISI IOC Level 3 qualification and this now leaves me with one more exam to be awarded with the full qualification. There is a selection of units that you can choose from for the third exam which is great as it gives you the autonomy to choose what you want to specialise in. For my final unit I have chosen to do the Global Securities Operations module as the syllabus looks very interesting and relevant to my role.
In addition to this good news, I have also started my new permanent position as the UK Equities Dividend administrator making April a very busy, but productive month. I am very pleased to be able to take a role on permanently within the firm and prove myself on a team that is faced with high workloads and tight deadlines. In terms of settling in, I have had no problems whatsoever as I already have good working relationships with everyone on the team from my placement here over a year ago.
The opportunity to gain experience on other teams prior to securing this permanent position at Rathbones was vital for me and as a result it has equipped me with the foundational knowledge to have a successful career within the industry.
